It's finally finished!  :woo

 

Between foot surgery, Christmas and gallbladder surgery, I'd like to have never got this thing done.  LOL  This is for my boyfriend's newphew.  He was born 1/24.  I wanted to get it there before he was born, but oh well. :D

 

The parents are big Florida Gators fans, hence the colors I chose.  Thanks for looking!

I wonder if there's something wrong with the forum.  Odd...I see them on my end.

Oh is that pretty Nicole!  I like the colors alot and it looks so soft!  What stitch is that you used?  Was it a pattern?  I know they will appreciate all the love and work that went into that!

Thanks everyone! :)

 

Deb - I didn't really use a pattern.  It's in what I call a "quick stitch" for the body.  It's sc, ch2 and two dc.  Then, the same thing is put in the ch2 spaces from the previous row.  The border is a modification of the border from Lion Brands "Bright Stripes Baby Afghan".  http://www.lionbrand...B.html?noImages=
