hey everyone, thanks for the replies.
just so you know i'm knitting 3 inch blocks for the blanket so I can't exactly show her the blanket on a needle. Yes i'm going to go and do the dreaded seaming up blocks thing when its over. I did try and pick and knit so i wouldn't have to do all this seaming business but i made a mess somehow doing it and i thought i was kind of ruining the blanket so i just decided to knit the blocks individually.
I am using 4mm acrylic needles (or are they plastic :/) and I'm using baby Aran wool. The pattern I am using is this one http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...ter-baby-throw

Its not much at the moment but hopefully it will be, at some stage.
