Baby Blanket Completed

I have finished the baby blanket for the baby girl of 2 dear friends of mine. We went to their wedding in Belfast on New Year's Eve 2010. It was an amazing time and The Boy has known them for about 10 years, he was an usher. So I wanted to make them something special and my new love of crochet came out to play.

So this is it! In their homeland's colours. I got so sick of these about halfway through but looking at it

now I love it and am a little bit proud of myself. It is a ripple pattern from Attic24, which is where I got the original inspiration from. And then I have just edged it with 3 rows of treble crochet in the green and white (preferable in my mind to the orange).

The vital statistics:
Size: 72cm x 48cm
Weight: no idea, completely forgot to weigh it before I packed it up.
Time: It took me about 2 months but could have been done a lot quicker if I cracked to it! I wanted to get it done for when she was born. Now going to be a 2 month old present.
Wool: 5 balls (ish) of Patons' Fairytale Dreamtime DK Pure Wool. £3.49/ball of 50g.
Cost: £17.45

Now I am moving on to Valentine's day cross stitch.
