i've been working on this blanket since the beginning of summer (various things happened to delay the work) but now it's done
a nice, even 30inches across
it's cream, with a slight pearly-ness, really soft and machine washable


the blanket


a closer shot of my lovely yo-yos

gonna ask mam to weave the ends in for me cause i'm useless at it, they always come out again, then all it needs it to be tied with a pretty blue ribbon and it'll be ready for Thomas' arrival

please please please tell me what you think

It's the beautiful-est baby blanket I've seen all year!  Was it hard to make the yoyos?

it's very easy actually, each yoyo is the equivilent of 16 double crochets, but you don't make individual ones, hmmm, i'm bad at explaining this
link will help i'm sure
