Daniel has been asking me to make him a blanket for a while, so I finally got around to it. He picked out the colors and the pattern from this book. I think it turned out well, although it is heavy which just means that it will be nice and warm. Since it's a regular blanket (instead of a baby blanket), I figure I shouldn't have to make him another one until he heads off to college or gets married or something. ;)
I finished this blanket from this book before I made Daniel's; I just never got around to posting it. I used my iPhone so the picture isn't the best. This was a fun blanket to make, although my mother suggested blocking it...and I'm sure that I should. But it's a baby blanket, and whoever gets it will wash it as soon as they bring it home. At least, I would.
I have a question for you, my faithful readers. Do you enjoy seeing pictures of the things I knit and crochet? Honestly, I feel a little like I'm bragging. If you do, too, please let me know, and I'll stop posting them. Thanks!

Third, I am mother to Sarah Beth who is ten years old, to Daniel who turned nine in February, to Rachel who turned seven at the end of January, to Mary who turned five in December, and to Hannah who turned one in February.
