Since we have moved my hands have been aching so bad in the evenings. To try to keep my joints moving and to help them to feel better I have been knitting and crocheting. This is a blanket that I started just because it used the yarn that I had in my stash, and I love the way that it turned out. I am going to give this to a friend from church that is having a baby in the next week or so. I really hope that she likes it. I know that the colors are a bit dark but I think that it is cute. It measures about 40 inches square and is really soft.
