Three months in the making...

On February 3rd, I made one little yellow star. Just one of dozens and dozens needed to complete an afghan pattern I found in an old issue of Crochet Today! magazine.

I offhandedly mentioned that I thought it might make a nice baby blanket, and someone challenged me to do it.

I can rarely resist a challenge (I'm too stubborn to admit I can't do whatever it is I've been dared to do), and so today I completed the star blankie. It'll be winging its way to a sweet little preemie named Willow tomorrow. A gift from her Auntie; the one who challenged me in the first place, and who deserves endless credit for throwing down the yarny gauntlet.

So today, I give you 80 motifs all strung together in one star-studded little baby blankie.

Thanks for the inspiration, Lori!
