Baby Blanket-Finished!

Hi everybody:
I finally finished my baby blanket and am happy to present it's picture to you!

Obviously I made some alterations to the layout that Ann and Kay give in the book. I only did about 16 ridges for block 9 and didn't include block 10 at all. This is due to the fact that the blanket was growing very rapidly! I used Caron Simply Soft and size 8 needles. I forgot to measure it before I gave it away (oops!) but I think that it is probably close to 36"x24".

I am thinking that I have enough yarn left over (I started out using 2- 3 oz skeins of each color, but had to buy some extra) that I can make a traditional log cabin blanket if I include another color.

I learned lots on this project and even though it's not "perfect" I really enjoyed making it and giving it away!

It is beautiful!
 
this is beautiful. I am using this kind of yarn for my mitered square blanket and it works out fine. I am using size 6 needles.

That is one lucky baby
 
lucky recipient! looks gorgeous!
 
It looks awesome! I have made a baby blanket that is a chunkier twin of that. I used Caron Simply Soft Quick in the white, blue, pink, and lavender, but instead of using the "moderne" pattern, just kept adding strips so it ended up with a spiral effect. When I learn to post pictures, I'll add mine to the gallery.

Love what you've done. It's really nice.
 
Lovely! Your alterations are invisible. :)
 
Great job, and I love the colors, too.
