Finished blankie

Here's the finished pom-pom blankie:




I'm  a little disappointed with the yarn as some of the pom-poms seem to go awry* and you don't really notice until later - also binding off is a real pain and 'hiding' the ends isn't easy. That said, I guess it's not that bad when you see it all together - sometimes the things that stick out like a sore thumb to the maker aren't as obvious to others. It's small because it's to be laid on top of another blanket and used in baby portrait photography. It's very soft and squishee. I haven't decided if I should put it in my Etsy shop yet - I don't really want to sell something I'm not happy with - what do you think? 



*Funny story - when I was a kid I didn't know how to properly pronounce "awry" and I thought it was said like "ah-wree", I made the mistake of telling Jp about that and he thinks it's pretty funny, whenever I see that word, I think of that story. Come on, I was, like, 9 years old - is that bad?

I like it - and don't see the wonky/awry poms.. :) I bet it's really soft - like little pillows to sleep on :)
