As most of you already know, Amy and Sheldon recently had a sweet little baby girl! cloud9

The nine moderators of the KH forum all worked together to make a blanket for the baby. We thought that the rest of you would enjoy seeing what we made. :)

The finished product!

When the squares were all complete, I seamed them together and added a crochet border.

And rather than thank everyone indivually for the nice words posted in this thread, I'll thank all of you at once and say that it was fun to pick out colors, patterns and exchange pictures with everyone. It was kind of like a virtual baby shower.

Special thanks go to Sandy though, for coordinating everything; she did the most work, all we had to do was knit a square.
