This was actually my first attempt at Jared Flood's Shale Baby Blanket--at least the first one I started. I finished one in Blue Sky Alpaca cotton earlier this year for an honest to goodness baby. I made the above blanket from a Korean angora blend in a bit larger size. I gave it to Dr. X. as a thank you gift for all her support over the past two years. Hopefully it will keep her lap warm on all those chilly 24 hour calls.
