I started knitting this doll blanket a long time ago...almost 5 years ago when we were in the process of relocating half way across the country and living in a hotel (two adults, a black lab and and 18 month old living in a hotel for a month...good times). Needless to say in the hustle and bustle of moving out of the hotel and into our house this project was thrown into a bag and shoved out of the way. It ended up in my craft room and sat there for a good 4 years. I found it again and would work on it whole I was on conference calls and finally finished it today. It will be going to my youngest daughter for Christmas for her bitt.y baby.
