So my friend emailed me a few weeks ago with a dilemma.  When her older daughter was born, my friend's aunt had made her a blankie, but since then her aunt has become a grandmother, and it appeared that no blankie was forthcoming for the new daughter who was born at the end of October.  She asked if I could make 1 just like her older daughter's..... BUT DIFFERENT!  Very helpful.  She offered to pay, and sent me specs.  I received the pics, and refused payment, and got to work.  I wound up freehanding a v-stitch in Red Heart Baby Clouds, and it worked up VERY quickly.  I ran out of the pretty middle color, so I made white stripes on both sides, with a pink picot edge.  I am really pleased with the way it came out.  Now the problem was getting it to her.  Did I mention that she lives in another country?  No? Well she does.  I wound up sending it to her in-laws who live in the states, and they brought it when they went to visit last week.  Anyway, blanket was a big hit and big sis tried to steal it, but my friend prevailed, and the baby now has her own blanket!

Now the pics.

Your blanket looks so warm and cuddly. I like the picot trim.
