Wow, you did a great job on the plaid - I am totally impressed.
Thanks cmouse01 for loking at the pattern i found and telling me about it and urs!
i REALLY wanna make a blanket like this! maybe i will do it next year sometime.. i might work out a baby/child size one first try out some colours and get the method down before commiting to a huge one! and the way my friends are at the mo, there'll be more babies next yr definitely (seems theres around 2-3 per yr atm)!! hahah!
A note about making this for a baby: NOT RECOMMENDED - my 'sister of the heart' made one for my daughter when she was a baby. One afternoon I put my darling daughter down for a nap and went in later to check on her; she had somehow pulled one of the woven chains far enough out to get it wrapped round her neck. She was peacefully sleeping, no harm done, but it sure scared me. I never let her sleep with that blankie again.
