The blanket I've been knitting for Mommikins over the past few weeks is done. Whew! I like the pattern much more than I thought I would however the blanket was much smaller than I had figured it would be (it would fit a single/twin bed without stretching). To be fair, that's my fault. I could have washed it and then pinned/stretched it but I don't have that much free floor space and I hate risking the cats eating one of the pins. I REALLY don't need another $1K + vet bill thank you. It IS the perfect size for using during her naps while watching her favourite baseball / hockey teams.

The blanket is currently spread out over the centre of Mom's bed awaiting her reaction (she's napping). I couldn't wait the 8 months until Christmas/her birthday so I decided to just give it to her now. Someone else is pretty impressed with the end product ...

The furry dude followed me into her room and waited patiently as I laid it out lovingly on Mom's bed. As soon as I stepped out to grab my camera, he hopped up and began sniffing around for the perfect spot. Time to find that spot? About 13 seconds. He's also currently napping - on the blanket. I guess if he gives it the nap of approval, I did a pretty good job.
Next up? A larger version of the Bippity Boppity Boo Baby Blanket for myself.
