When i found out my friend was pregnant with a girl a couple months ago, i knew what i was going to do with all that pink yarn i'd somehow acquired.
Despite using several different types of yarn (i'll never mix Caron Simply Soft with Red Heart Super Saver again... at least not for a project like this), i'm so happy with how this turned out.
Before joining them all together, i was a little worried. But now that i've finished, i can't stop looking at it, and folding it. Yeah, folding it...
Ignore the loose ends floating behind it. I cut them all off last night.
The colors are a little off here. It's really a bit brighter in real life.
I kind of love the way the back looks here.
In this picture, they're all joined horizontally, but i'd yet to join them vertically.
I wasn't sure what sort of border to do, the only one i could think of was scalloped. I just didn't feel like that was right for this blanket. So, i googled afghan borders, and when i saw the ruffled border, i knew it was perfect.
Isn't it adorable? Just right for a baby girl, right?
I was actually sort of afraid when i was making the squares that it would turn out too small. But it actually seemed to get almost bigger when i joined them.
Here it is modeled by my 3.5-year-old niece:
Pleeenty big for a baby. And it should grow with her for a few years, at least.
