3rd Blanket - complete!!

#3 blanket for DS#1 is complete!!! I can't believe that I have three done so far! Each color looks just a good as the last and these are all so soft and cuddly!
Started: 3/27/2010
Finished: 5/17/2010
Needles: US 13
Yarn: Lion Brand Homespun
Color: #309 Deco (cream)
#373 Black
70 3/4 inches by 53 1/2 inches
Of course the kids see me knitting these.

But I've been able to convince them that we just need more blanket to snuggle with on the couch during family movie night. Only the oldest has wondered why they are not actually on the couch. I have told her that they are not "completely" complete. This is techinically true.......none of them have my labels on them yet :o)
Not such a great picture, but this is the praying matis egg case hatching. The babies are wriggling out of the bottom of the egg case. It was quite exciting to watch.
A little better shot of the baby mantis. They are actually quite cute!
