I say finally because I started this blanket in April 2006 and just finished it last week.
The pattern is Fiber Trends Heart Baby Blanket, and I just used plain old Red Heart. I did the larger size, which included 14 repeats of the heart pattern. I really think this is a beautiful pattern, but for me, for some reason, it just seemed like every row took forever to knit. :teehee:
I started it when my sister-in-law was pregnant with her first child, and I gave it to her on Thanksgiving for the second child. However, it didn’t get quite the reception that I thought it would, and she actually forgot to take it with her. My brother came back in the house to get some juice for the baby before leaving and I guess he saw it and picked it up on the way out. But, whatever. I’m just glad to be finished with it, and nobody can say I didn’t make an effort.
