On the needles

Or, rather, recently OFF the needles!

I just finished this baby blanket for a friend of mine. She’s due in April and I can’t wait to give this to her the next time I see her.

I love how the bright, cheery colors turned out and am especially in love with the scalloped edges. (a first for me)

It seemed like it took me FOREVER to finish this blanket – a lot longer than the last one I made. I think it’s because the yarn was a little bit smaller gauge than the last one I made, which was a chunkier yarn.  But I love how this one turned out, even if it seemed like the never-ending-blanket-project for a couple months.

And as soon as I finished I started the NEXT baby blanket.  Sheesh! How many people are having babies these days? Smile

I’m just a blanket makin’ fool…
