I made this blanket in Shepherd of NZ 4ply - its a lovely soft baby wool - for my new niece Maeve. There are 5 separate panels - 2 are a leafi insert, the other 3 are a variety of different stitches, with a square of diamond lace in between. It has a simple garter stitch border. Its my first project of this kind - I've mostly just done baby & kids jumpers etc before, so it was quite a big deal for me! I'm really pleased with it - hope Maeve is too!
I had planned on knitting in her name & birthdate, but it didn't work the way I had envisaged, so we're making that square into a teddy bear's blankie!!

I'm glad you figured out the picture thing, we couldnt see how lovely it was in the pic that first went up.
That Shepherd baby wool is soft isn't it. It is perfect for a baby shawl/blanket and wee clothes.
