Last minute present done!

I thought I had plenty of time to make this blanket....for a great grandbaby of a friend at church...until I got the shower invitation!  Unfortunately I will miss the shower (leaving for Scotland again this week) and wanted the present done before I left.  

Pattern: Tiramisu (free)
Hook: H 
Yarn:  Bernat Baby Softee (1.4 skeins white) and a little pink
Mods: none
I decided to crochet this because it goes faster....and with one week to make it that was important.  I also thought it could be a stash buster, because I had the white in my stash.  I ran out and went to get another skein....they were out of white, hence the pink border!  (I did reduce the stash some with this, but not as much as I hoped) I think it works though and is ready in plenty of time!

Very pretty! I think the lucky recipient is going to love it. I crochet a lot faster then I knit and I'm a pretty fast knitter. Enjoy your trip to Scotland.

The pink border looks wonderful, Leah! What a treasure for the lucky recipient. Have fun in Scotland, and don't buy too much yarn.....
