A New Blanket

I have been making baby blankets to give as gifts for a couple of years now. In fact, the little girl that I made the very first blanket for, will be 3 in October. I've been making this one pattern every time. It's a really pretty blanket with a lacy edge and a ribbon around the boarder. I've used every color yarn and every color ribbon to make it. I've made DOZENS (no exaggeration) of this same blanket in all kinds of color combinations. I've just grown tired of it. It's not as special to me anymore. So, when it came time to make another blanket, I decided to try a different pattern. This has a really lacy edge to it. I absolutely loved it. I made this one in pink. I started this blanket the first full week in May. After I finished the body of it and realized that I had missed something somewhere along the way... I had to frog the entire thing and start all over! And so, I finished the 2nd attempt the 3rd week in May. With just 2 days to spare until the baby shower I was taking it to! But, I think it turned out really pretty.
