I have finished Little Man's Cobblestone Baby Blanket! Do you want proof of this?

Wait, you think I'm hiding my needles behind that chair? You want MORE proof?!

So, on to the specifics for this lovely FO Friday :)
Pattern: Little Man's Cobblestone Baby Blanket (not yet written properly or available - will be seeking test knitters within the next few weeks - check back for more information if you're interested)
Needles: US #6 circulars...I measured them and they turned out to be 40" circulars (if you measure from tip to tip)
Yarn: Knitting Worsted by Brown Sheep Company (discontinued) in a seafoam green color
Size: It's technically a baby blanket...but I guess it could be used as a lapghan.
Modifications: It's my pattern...what modifications could there possibly be?
I finished this very late last night so it's not blocked or washed or had it's ends woven in yet. I'll get to that sometime this weekend, I expect...that is, if Little Man doesn't hold it hostage immediately (and he might).
This blanket has been haunting me since I started it in June 2010. I was approximately five months pregnant at the time and I thought, "oh, no big deal; I can whip up a blanket in no time."
Oops. Yeah, let's not talk about that silly thought.....
Husband made the suggestion that I not give it to Little Man for awhile so he doesn't ruin it. It's 100% wool and will felt (he's been instructed not to wash it or anything of that nature under threat of pain). I may only use it for snuggles or in his crib for awhile until he's old enough to understand that this blanket is special. We'll see.
Anyway, here's a lovely picture of Little Man. He discovered he could put a box on his head.
