It took a long time to complete, but I finally did it!
Ta-da! My first knitted baby blanket!
Considering I frogged a bunch earlier in January, it's shocking I finished it on January 30th.
I ended up using 3 skeins of Homespun. The finished size was 31 1/2" by 37" - not exactly square but it worked out fine. More details are available on Ravelry.
I mailed this off to Edward last week and it should be keeping him warm as I write this....that is, if the postal service didn't lose it.
