Blankey done!
....and ready to wash, block....then I simply MUST give it away (but don't want to....I want to crochet around edge one more time....backwards sc, so as to firm up the edge). Or am I stalling?

Oh, wow! The finished blanket is lovely indeed! I love the way the border is all ruffly looking. I vote to wash it, block it, and get it to the intended recipient. Seeing how pleased she is might help with the empty feeling, too.

Then find something else to work on! That's always a fun thing to look forward to, right?

Oh I hope so, Antares. I grew far too fond of this little baby blanket....and me with no grandchildren to give it to! But my Dad, in a retirement home, would be happy to give it to one of the young women who works there; she had a baby in September.

Now I want to make a beautiful cowl for my d-i-l who is currrently suffering swollen glands in her neck.....a mystery even her doctor can't answer of yet. Worrisome.

now off to search for cowl patterns.

Good for you! You're looking for another pattern to start, and that's a great way to make parting with the finished project more bearable!

Sorry to hear about your daughter-in-law, and yeah, that is worrisome!

I love it, Woodi! I kind of like the edge curly like that!
