I'm just showing you the finished baby blanket that I've made for my new niece/nephew, when they decide to show up at the end of October/beginning of November.
Remember? I told you about it like a million years ago?
Well it's done. It's been done for a while but I've been incredibly lazy in getting it photographed but tomorrow it will be given to my brother and sister-in-law for them to take home to await the arrival of Niece/Nephew Number Four.
It's probably a little large to really be allowed to be called a baby blanket but I have rationalised this by saying that
a) it might be a very big baby, and
b) he/she needs to be swaddled up good and proper.
I did want to do a fancy edging but in the end decided to keep it simples and just did one round of each colour before finishing with a bit of the white. I felt it was already big enough without going anymore overboard.
I'll be sad to see it go. Do you ever worry that people don't quite get how much time it takes to make a blanket like this? It's not that I don't think they won't appreciate it but there's a small part of me that wants to hand it over and go "You'd better be appreciative you bitches, this has taken me friggin' ages". But instead I will hand it over and say "I just wanted to make something for my new niece/nephew".
