FO: Butterfly Baby Blanket
Thanks to the people who pointed me in the right direction to find a butterfly pattern that required the least possible amount of crochet! The pattern for the blanket is from the first Stitch n B* book and the butterflies were from the SnB Nation book. TFL!

I finished the blanket for my neighbor's baby and delivered it to them on the 26th...only to find out that the baby had been born on the night of the 25th! They brought her home from the hospital today and she was covered with my blanket when they did

One more so you can see the baby with her blankie!

Also, I'm just so proud of myself because this is the largest project I've ever finished! I've been working on another baby blanket on-and-off for at least a year, and I finished this one in about a month. I was knitting like a madwoman and had it almost finished in 2 weeks...then I took a break for a week or two!

That is positively beautiful! I've thought about making that blanket myself. I love the look of neatness of the borders.

Thanks, everybody!!
The baby's nursery is decorated with butterflies, that's why I decided to add them onto the blanket.
