I just completed a baby blanket for my first grandson (who was born yesterday!). It is the "Laughing Cat Shawl" design from Mmario.
I used Plymouth Yarns Babyshine in white on a U.S. #7 needle. It took a lot of yarn - approximately 1200 yards. The blanket ended up 44" square. I made it smaller than the pattern would have been bydoing Border B twice (instead of 4 times). Just for your information there is the body of the blanket, Border A (done 2x), Border B, and then the Cats paw edge.
It worked up quickly and is another example of Mmario's beautiful design work!
