Heather and Jeff's Wedding Blanket

Here is the finished blanket for Heather and Jeff's Wedding Present. It was only two months late. They got married in June but they could not use it in the summer anyway so it wasn't too horrible that it was late.
I got the digits for most of the knitters that Heather and Jeff know (sorry Sarah) from Jeff. They all were excited and made two squares each for the Blanket. I got the yarn at WEBS- with discount score! We used Misty Alpaca Chunky so it knit up quickly. The only rule was the square had to be 12x12 blocked. The ladies chose some beautiful patterns. I bordered it with seed stitch (Heather's favorite) in tan. I have taken lots of pictures so that each square can be seen. If only I had remembered to take a picture of Heather with it She loved it!
Ladies who made it: Can you find your square? I made a chart to go with it in the card for The Happy Couple but did not keep a copy for myself. It was pre-blog. But Heather and Jeff can see who contributed.
At the shower and Wedding we all had to act like we didn't know each other when we met. It was fun. Good thing we are all pretty friendly so The happy Couple didn't suspect a thing.
Here is the only full blanket shot I managed.
Hopefully some day my photos will look as cool as Brooklyntweeds blog shots.
But for now you can at least enjoy the finished project high with me.
Peace and Yarn,
Annie

I totally love that blanket. It's such a nice idea to have all the knitters in her life contribute. Annie, you're so creative :)
