The pattern should have a lacy border but, a) I didn't have time to knit it and b) the baby's little fingers get caught up in the lacy pattern so I don't usually add the border. The pattern is really easy to knit being just knit or purl stitches but it looks very pretty.
I also gave Maria her baby quilt. I posted this as a finish a few weeks ago but I'm going to indulge myself and repost the photo.
Maria was very happy with her gifts which after having the fun of making the quilt and blanket is the icing on the cake.
Now all I have to do is try and finish some of my other projects before I start anything new. I'm linking this post with Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom quilts.
