FO: Stripy baby blanket.

I've been making - and neglecting - this baby blanket for months & months, but recently I took control and at last it's finished. Couple of pics:



I procrastinated for ages towards the end because there was so much post-production: millions of ends to weave in, and blocking it was an adventure in itself. Anyway, I'm delighted that it's now a FO and I'm free to move the next knitting project up the list.

That is AWESOME!!! I am in awe of all the ends you wove in. Is the recepiant a knitter to at least? I can't imagine the time you put into that!

It's fantastic. And I like the others am in complete awe of how many ends you had to weave in. WOW!!!! I shy away from things with too many colour changes for that very reason! ha ha!

I love the colours too!
