It's been roughly two months in the making but I'm really happy with how this blanket turned out. The only thing that is the downside about the blanket is when I did the rectangle of stockinette stitch to write Aidan's name in it, it was a lot wider horizontally than the rest of the blanket because the rest was done in a cable stitch which drew the yarn in. Lesson learned.
OH and the other major bummer? My aunt is only about 20-ish weeks and after CONFIRMING at 15 weeks that she was going to name the baby Aidan Miles, she recently told me she's thinking of other baby names. :passedout:
Here's the blanket:
THe color change you see in the middle is not noticeable at all in real life, it's just the way it turned out with the flash.
Close up of name:
Even more close up of name:
And close-up of border:
I know it has its faults but I LOVE my new blanket!! cloud9 And I hope and pray that she won't change the baby name!!!
