Another Dang Baby Blanket
This baby blanket is for a high-school friend whose shower was last weekend -- it's this pattern, but instead of Homespun (which, frankly, I've seen more than enough of to last me a year or two) I used Terryspun in Powder and knit with size 13 needles instead of 11. Understandably, my gauge didn't work out the same -- so I just knit with increases until one side was 36 inches (which was the size the pattern said it should be when finished) and then started decreasing. Worked like a charm.
My favorite part of giving this particular present was that I finally got to use my tags, which were a present from my mom for Valentine's Day. Nifty, eh?
In this picture, Dana (the mother-to-be) is explaining to everybody that I also knit a cute little hat for her when she found out she was having a girl. I think she liked it. :)

Shannon - I love the tags (and the blanket looks beautiful)! I only hope someday I'll be making gifts enough to need some tags of my own! :)

I'm impressed -- and I think the mom-to-be was also, judging by the pic.
