Wow. I logged in expecting the usual posts and found your blanket. I'm in awe. It's beyond amazing. You even did Mama knitting on your own. I'm glad this thread got bumped and I got to see your work of art. Such a lovely way to start my day.

Ingrid, I missed this original post too. What a lovely blanket! It's so much fun looking at the knit versions of the drawings from those wonderful books. I read them to my children so many times that we could recite them. Beautiful work.
Thanks, everyone. I always loved the Beatrix Potter books, too, so I was thrilled to find the book with the charts. I was happy to make it for Amy and Sheldon, too, since I knew it would be appreciated.

I get it now. I haven't been on this site too much in the last few months and forgot that Amy & Sheldon are the ones that host the site. I was thinking in my mind how are three children going to share this blanket and just knew they would fight over it. Now I feel so dull.
