Wow. this was my first time straying away from scarves and hats, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. It's bigger than I would've expected a baby blanket to be. It took me about 3 months to finish, but that was working on it in my little time between school and work.
The lady I'm making it for hates pastel colors, so I decided that I'd pick come of the colors I frequently see her wear.
So, without further ado.....
dollar bill to show the size of the squares.
I feel like a weenie, because I forgot to take a decent picture of the border, but you can kind of see it in the photo of the entire blanket.
As always, comments are welcome. This is the biggest thing I've ever made, and I'd love to know what people think of it.
I went to Penny's baby shower today, and she and Mark LOVED the blanket!
Those two are amazing. They're 46 and 51, respectively, and they're having their first child. They're the same age my grandparents were when I was born, and Penny is the same age my parents are now. I really think that's great that they're doing this. They're great people, and it's just really refreshing to see.
