My original plan was to make a fancy border for this blanket, but by the time I finished the petal section, it was already 40 inches in diameter. So I finished it off with a very simple scalloped border instead.

Doily Style Baby Blanket
This is made out of the same yarn as the Lilacs in February blanket. I had purchased an extra skein (Caron Pounder in lilac), in case I needed it to finish that blanket. I didn't use it, so I decided to make another blanket out of it. I ended up needing more than 16 oz of yarn for this blanket, so I had to buy another skein. Of course I still have most of that last skein left, so now I will have to think of something else to make out of it. I made up this pattern as I went along, but so far I've only written out the first 15 or so rows. I'm not sure that this will ever become a written pattern, since it required such a lot of ripping out and re-doing in order to get it to lay flat. As is the case with most of the baby things I make, this will be donated to the local pregnancy resource center.
