Tia's Baby Blanket Is Finished

I finished it yesterday. It only took me 11 days! I think that's a record. Maybe not. I don't feel like trying to find out either..   ;P   Anyway, I used Modern Grace Designs' Baby Blanket pattern.  I used an H hook, and six skeins of Red Heart Super Saver, in Pale Yellow. (I didn't use all of the sixth skein.)  I chained 152 to start.  Her baby is due August 9th. Right when it is super hot in the summer...   So I wanted it to be a little bigger. more of a toddler ghan that she could use longer. 

I still do not know if she's having a boy or a girl. I've sent her at least four letters, and an S.A.S.E. But she hasn't written me back. So...  I guess its a good thing I just went ahead and picked a color. I think I mentioned before, that I did Eli's baby room in yellow and green. A buttercup yellow, and sage green.  I couldn't find a yellow I liked for a buttercup yellow for this afghan, so that's why I used pale yellow. 

The edging. I just did it all one color, not using a different color for the edging. I liked that, but I just wanted to make it all one color..
