Sorry, but we've just got to brag a little bit. Actually, we're going to brag so much that we're busting out the first person....singular.
My fantastic, wonderful, ambitious mother wanted to knit me a blanket. Knowing how picky I am about, oh...everything, she asked me for a little bit of design-help and made me pick out the colors. I suggested a colorblock kind of layout and then she worked out the details. And now...looky looky what my beginning-knitter momma whipped out in just a few short months! Best blanket (and mom) ever? We think so!
