A Simple Christmas Baby Blanket

Hello Guys,
I hope you are all getting your projects finished in time for Christmas. I still have a couple more to go, but got a baby blanket made for my bosses new baby girl. It's just simple washcloth design done on a bigger scale with 55% acrylic and 45% cotton. To even out the stitches, I threw it in the washer and then the dryer and it came out softer than when it went in.

I thought I'd share some photos with you. Some are done to put in a card that is going with the blanket as a keepsake for their daughter, so I put a bit of Christmas decoration in them.

Nicely done! Simple, but serviceable, and yet quite elegant. I do like that touch with the ribbons -- very nice!

Mark, it turned out beautifully!
Question...did you sew the bows so they won't come untied???
(I'd recommend it...)

Mark, that did come out just great! Those ribbons were just the perfect touch. Very lucky baby and parents.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Have to agree about the ribbons. Makes that old simple dishrag pattern fit for a princess.
