I am in the process of hunting for the perfect baby blanket for my uncle and his wife. This is an absolutely beautiful pattern, but I'm curious as to how you finished it? I would say that a ruffle border would look adorable with this sort of blanket (especially for a girl, which is what their having). But by the looks of it, you were making one for someone expecting a boy!
