It is looking great. One thing I have found when you have a pattern that isn't too difficult but enough so that you have to pay attention and can't mindlessly knit is to limit distractions. Tv, music, even kids or husbands can get your brain off track. I also always use a mantra when I knit a two knit pattern, which this looks like. In other words, in my head I repeat, k3, p3, k3, p3 or whatever it is. Your brain soon locks it in and just keeps going without you really thinking about it anymore. I know she is going to love her blankie!!!
