Pink Baby Blanket Complete


I'm happy to report that the baby blanket is finished and done.  I do love the way it turned out.  The yarn was Lion Ease cotton and I unearthed the skeins from deep deep stash.  I cannot remember when I bought it or where.  I do know that I paid only two dollars a skein :)


As you know, this is for Frodo's groomer who is a god send to us.  She grooms and she does behavioral training as well.  Frodo's last groomer was not his favorite at all and he had high anxiety.  The current groomer retrained him to LOVE being groomed!!   A miracle :)


So now that she is expecting her first baby, and a girl I might add, I wanted to do something special.  I also have on the needles a sweet little cardigan that will be done next week, I hope. She is due sometime in April so I have lots and lots of time.
