It's Christmas present the third!

I made this baby blanket for my niece or nephew to be (due in November)


I used this pattern: http://www.angelfire.com/va3/heartfeltangels/littlestarafghan.html and Bernat Satin - two balls of white, a ball and a bit of the blue, and maybe half a ball for the yellow.

My sister-in-law is doing a moon and stars theme in the nursery and sent me a picture so I could get an idea for the colours.  I think this will do nicely!


Though, I wish I could have made it a bit bigger (It measures just shy of three feet)... it turned out that I only had two balls of white in the same dye lot.  I did as many rounds as I could with it, and then finished off with a backwards-sc stitch as a border.  I think I had a yard or two of white left in the end. Whew!
