Beatrix Potter Blanket
This is a blanket that I made for Amy, Sheldon and little Erin. I haven't been able to load pix for a while, so here we go. I got the patterns from The Beatrix Potter Knitting Book by Pat Menchini, except for the Mama knitting. I made that one. I HAD to have knitting in there, somewhere.

Thank you, everyone. It really was fun to make, and I am really happy 1) on how it turned out and 2) that I had someone special to give it to.
