The baby blanket...

For those of you who dropped in on Wednesday and asked to see updates on the baby blanket I was making here is the latest news.




This is what you saw on Wednesday. Just 7 more squares to knit.










I finished these last 7 and laid them all out on my table to plan the pattern of colours.









Last night, whilst watching the telly, I sat and stitched them all together. First in rows then I stitched all the rows together carefully keeping the pattern correct. [Sorry about the dark photo].






And then I crocheted 3 rows of white around to edge it. Hey presto it's finished. It's for a very special little friend [actually not so little at the mo!] who's baby is due in August so hope she likes it.





p.s. Pop over to Julie's for the chance to win her fab blog candy.

Also do pop over to Helen's blog to check out her Blog Candy, the Opening of her New Shop/Challenge blog/CFS/ME awareness day 12th May here.

That's multi-tasking - being ale to watch the telly and crochet. Both require my full concentration. Looks perfect too. Lovely - lucky mum-to-be.
