In less than 2 weeks I managed to finish the 2nd half of the baby blanket I started earlier this summer. I'm happy to report that after 41,055 stitches the baby blanket has finally been finished. Now Baby Whalen just needs to hurry up and get here!
Here's the link to the pattern for this blanket: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mirror-blanket
Update, on 1/30/2012 Marion arrived! Here is a super adorable picture of her that was taken a couple months after she was born.
(Here are some super cute slippers type shoes I got for Marion on Esty)
