I love the stripes! They remind me of the cheshire cat hence the name. Can't you just imagine how cute it would look with a newborn all swaddled up inside. But apparently Corey's family can only birth boys. Out of 13 kids in Corey's family there are only 4 girls. Those are not good odds! So into the gift box this blanket will go until someone has a little girl that it can be gifted to.
I blocked the crap out of this blanket but for some reason the hood still rolls. I didn't do any edging cause I ran out of yarn and I didn't want to buy anymore. That would just defeat the purpose of stash busting! So I have decided to let it go and embrace the imperfection. I think it's cute with or without the rolling! This was a bit of a mindless knit being basically a stockinette square so I think I might need to make something a little bit more interesting for my next project. Stockinette is a bit boring after a while!
