"Things with Wings" Baby Blanket


This is the baby blanket I knitted. The squares were adapted from dishcloth patterns. It was knitted with Caron's Simply Soft...it really is!!

**since so many seem to want to make this, the patterns can be found here:
(Dragonfly and Spring Butterflies)

and the other butterflies were purchased here:

I had to adjust the sizes to fit my design and it took some thinking and advice from the dishcloths and knitting groups on Yahoo, but they worked just fine.

Oh my goodness! I thought it didn't get more beautiful than the pink fan and feather blanket, and then I scroll down and find this. You have great taste in colors.. these work so well together.
