Thanks, atla and dmbgirl41! I may try that less holey square for the snuggles project stuff I wanted to do...I know the holes were a problem for kitty claws, but this may work. I def. prefer to make the granny squares to regular squares...less counting = good!

And dmbgirl41...yeah, I don't know, maybe I am not a square person indeed! My only thought was maybe that I was not evenly rotating the corners I was adding colors too, so maybe it got wonky that way? I am going to take the washing suggestion too and see what happens.

I was planning on making a smaller, matching blanket for their cat (he is like their first child, so I think she will find that to be cute!), so I may wash the current one as is and see how it pans out, and then maybe keep that one for the cat and start the baby one anew.

It is a variety of different acrilic yarns, I just made sure they were all the same weight, a combination of red heart and bernat.

Alrighty...so I was worried about the ends on my blanket, and since I was planning on making a matching smaller blanket for their cat, I decided to use the 1st version for the cat one and re-start the one for my nephew. I decided to really be mindful of weaving the ends in as I was going and making tighter, neater stitches. Which look nice....except that it's taking a TON longer because it's not 'growing' as fast.

I sort of felt like the crochet/knit books where they demonstrate how gauge is important....so here is the blanket with the same yarn, same hook size, same stitches, same amount of rounds (minus one side which is short a row)...just tighter stitches...



I think the new version looks much nicer because the stitches are tighter and neater, so it looks less 'newbie', but I am getting a little panicked about finishing now, as I had calculated time based on how fast I did the other one,

Ok, it is done and off, for better or for worse. I simply ran out of time to make it as big as I wanted. My hands and wrists just started killing me after I stayed up til 4am the other night to finish it and I knew I would not be able to do any more in the morning before I had to send it, so I just did the border and called it a day.



I think she will still like it. It ended up being 28x28, which is a little on the small size, but hey, it's the thought that counts!
