Baby Blanket #1....Done!

This blanket is ready to go off to its new owner! I really liked the pattern, but knitting a blanket is not for the faint of heart! Thank you for cheering me on the finish line.
Pattern: Bernat Baby Coordinates Chunky Cables Blanket by Bernat Design Studio
Yarn: Pound of Love, antique white
Needles: US 10
Mods: None...I did 6 repeats. It wasn't as long as the pattern suggested, but I thought it was pretty square. I probably should have done 7, but you live and learn!
Sorry the blog has grown so quiet....being on the job market and finishing a phd sometimes just doesn't leave me much time, or in the mood, to be a good blogger. I do have a couple more things to show you in the near future, so don't worry!

Wow, this is beautiful! I would love a bigger version of this for my side chair in the LR... but what color??? Way to go on knitting two blankets in one year!

I think this is the one you made for Eden. I love it and she was so sweet as a newbie snuggled in it this past winter. You're a delightful friend.
