My brother finished the baby blanket yesterday, washed and laid it out to dry. Here is the finished product.
His friends as it turned out, kept him too busy to finish it when he went to visit them. He did get to show it to them. He laid it out on their carpet when she was out of the room, and when she came back in, she started squealing =) perfect reaction!
Bask ye in it's awesomeness =) my bro rocks!!
eta - oh yeah, we have hatchlings!
