My co-worker sent me a few pictures of the edgings on the receiving blankets. I still find it pretty hard to turn the corners in an attractive way but you can see the work a little here.
Perhaps the best part is that someone attending the picture asked me how you keep changing the thread color on the rainbow one. I was sort of like... well, it's variegated thread?

I made two receiving blankets for a co-worker and took them to her shower on Wednesday. She seemed excited by how soft they were (the material really IS soft) and definitely could tell they were hand-done and appreciated them. The first ones I did (last year) the recipient said "oh how pretty..." until she realized they were hand-done. Then she got really excited and appreciative. Anyway, I hadn't taken my usual pictures and posted them, partially because the recipient is a Facebook friend so I could't post them over there (although I could have posted them here). And I totally forgot to take the pictures at all. I asked her to take some extras and send them so when I get them, I'll post them here as well as Facebook.
