Finished!!!!

I was deteremined to finish this blanket, so I was up till 2AM seaming all the edgings on. I re-wet blocked it to flatten out the seams. I have to say, I have done other seaming projects but they were either crocheted together or whip stitched. This was the first time I've done the mattress stitch. I started at about 10PM thinking it would only take me about an hour or so to complete.... 4 hours later! But it's done!!

Madelyn's blanket

Pattern: Lace Christening Blanket from Vogue Knitting Baby Blankets

Yarn: KnitPicks Shine Sport, 12 skeins of Silver Sage

Needles: KnitPicks Options size 5

Notes: The pattern actually called for each panel to be knit seperately, but I didn't want to do all that seaming, so I cast on all seven panels together and used stitch markers to mark each panel.

I'm 49 but if I can get a baby blankie like that from you I might consider getting pregnant again!
