FO: Little Boy Blue Blanket
Today I finished a blanket for Baby Due in the Fall #1 (so far there are three, geez).



The pattern is Little Boy Blue Blanket, a free pattern from Caron.

I have some notes on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Shan...y-blue-blanket

I am really proud of myself for these looooong cables. I've only been able to find one mistake (and of course I find it AFTER I finish the whole thing); there is a row about halfway up where I C6F'd the middle braid twice in a row instead of alternating C6F/C6B. Since the recepient is a non-knitter, I'm hoping they wont notice?
