Two baby blankets

Some one has let out  of the bag that I can expect a new grand-daughter in two or three weeks time.  Consequently I have been busy weaving not one, but two, baby blankets - one in use and one in the wash.  Yes, I know it is a girl, but the mum likes blue.  Amazingly, I started with 400g of blue and 200g of white, and just managed to finish with a metre or two of each colour remaining.  One blanket is 930mm x 810mm and weighs 296g, whilst the second is 800mm x 810mm and weighs 255g.
Am now waiting to visit the mum and new born, and, of course, the new dad.
