Prizewinning blanket!

It's baby time amongst my friends and colleagues at the moment. Here is the first present finished, for a baby boy due at the start of November.

Baby Blanket Number 5
Once again I have used a variety of blocks from Jan Eaton's wonderful 200 Crochet Blocks and improvised a border.
Baby Blanket Number 5

Started: 13th July 2008
Finished:
20th August 2008
Hook: 4mm
Yarn: RYC Cashsoft 4 ply 3 balls each of Weather, Dive and Spring.
Comments: I decided on a different layout this time, making it 4 blocks by 6 rather than the 5 by 5 I have done previously. Hopefully this should make it more cot shaped. I also joined the blocks as I went to save the hideous sewing up at the end. It made the joins quite neat and invisible. I'm really pleased with it and hope Mum and Dad like it!

It's lovely! I can't imagine all of those ends though. Cashsoft is a great yarn for things like this, it'll make a gorgeously soft baby blanket.
