Took me about a month to complete this blanket. Started on August 16 and finished yesterday an hour or two before the baby shower!
I bought the yarn at Fibre Space in Alexandria. It's a mixture of Berroco Weekend and Filatura Di Crosa Zara 8.
The finished blanket is about 45" diameter. The pattern is based on Lion Brand's Artful Afghan. I chose pink, white, tan and green to go with the cherry blossom theme of the nursery. It looked nice coming off the needles but what made it really beautiful was steaming it with the iron!
