The baby lace blanket is from a Vanna White pattern. I found myself in possession of tons of green baby yarn, so I found a baby pattern I liked and went for it. One interesting thing about this blanket was that the border was a separate piece that I then had to wrap around and sew onto the blanket. Wow, the blanket looks really wonky in the photo. Anyways, I gave it to a former college roommate who just had a baby.




This blanket was actually supposed to be a full-sized afghan, but either my gauge is insanely tight or the pattern left out a few scallops. At any rate, it became apparent that it was more of a lap blanket size, so I just went with it. I gave it to my MIL for Christmas. Again, using up yarn that I had, but it also conveniently matches the colors in her living room. In the second picture you can see how the scallops are raised. I forget the name of the book I got this from.

Thanks, everybody!

Cranberry -- this is the book with the baby blanket pattern that I used: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/0848724526/ref=dp_image_0?ie=UTF8&n=283155&s=books I think it would be fairly easy to increase the size, just by repeating the motif a couple of times more. Since the border is a separate piece, you can also increase it as needed. It is worked side to side.
