Toddler Scarf

I made this scarf for my friend's 20 month old daughter. It's simply 18 dc wide, and each stripe is 6 rows thick. I made it with Bernat Soft Boucle, which is my favourite yarn for fabrics that will be against the wearer's skin. It's sooo soft.

Blanket for Sprout

Now that the blanket has finally arrived, I can post it! It was a surprise for my friend Deb who is expecting her second baby late December/early January. I started working on it in June and finished it on October 15 (I was working on multiple projects at the same time, see the bookmark and toy balls I made also.)

It is approximately 33" x 37" so it will hopefully last him/her through the toddler years as well.

I made this for my friend Emma's 21st birthday. It took me about 8-10 hours to complete. I haven't worked with thread since I was pregnant with Aaron, so I'd forgotten how much longer it takes! This is what it is supposed to look like:
The design in the heart-shaped part of it isn't quite as crisp as in the original. Not bad for a first try though, I think.
