i loved knitting this. it took a long time but it was never boring. i used a pattern that i found on ravelry but i tweaked it a bit. the color chart was off and the final round wasnt the same on all sides, so a friend and i redid the chart to make it work. i also changed the border color to pink after we found out the baby is a girl. she isnt due til the beginning of august...im so glad i finished early!

pattern - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cotton-ease-baby-blanket

yarn - lion brand cotton ease. first time working with it, it knit up nicely.

It really does look great!

What does the backside look like? Did you line it?

Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

no, its not lined. i dont really love how the back looks, it has weird puffy seams from picking up stitches. but its just going to have a right side and a wrong side. i feel like lining it might ruin it.

That's beautiful.  I love cottonease for baby projects because it works up so soft and durable, but it's cost effective.

Yay- I'm so excited you made my pattern! It's my first one- I'm sorry you had trouble with it. The blanket turned out beautifully. Would you mind sharing your fixes to the pattern so I can update it on my blog?
Thanks!
