Bows and Hearts Blanket for Violet
I finally finished this thing. Drove me bonkers for a whole month and I have to say I am super glad it is finished. Not difficult, but definitely a pattern you have to knit without outside disruptions. I made it for my son and dil's best friends' new baby girl. They have been on the adoption list for a long time and as such were totally unprepared when the time came so hopefully they will enjoy this for their baby girl.

Oh, you've done an excellent job on this! Love the colors and the little hearts! What a beautiful baby blanket. I just hope they don't think it's too beautiful to use.

But sorry to hear it drove you nuts for a whole month (it would have driven me crazy for months and months and maybe even years 'cause I'm a slow knitter)!

Very lovely! I have a question: did you knit it in little squares, one at a time, and then have to stitch them together? or is there a way to knit it all as one piece?

at any rate, CONGRATULATIONS on a job well done!
