The Patchwork Afghan

This is a very soft and cushy afghan and I don't know whether or not it can be called a baby blanket. When I bought the yarn, people kept saying what a lucky baby, but the pattern is for an afghan and not a blanket. I didn't have a baby in mind when I bought the yarn and when I set out to make a baby blanket with it, I didn't like it.

So I guess this isn't a baby blanket.
Unless someone buys it for their baby.

This was made with Bernat Softy Chunky and has stockinette, seed stitch, and cable squares. 3 different squares, 4 colors and it still came out in order. I don't know how it happened. It's very soft, but not overly warm so it might make a good ankle warmer. It will be placed for sale during the Pleasant Home sale next week and since it will be a very reasonably priced $30-$35, I know it is going to sell. The photo really doesn't do it justice. (I need to hone up on my skilz.)
