Zahra's Blanket

This is the second time I'm knitting "Johnny's Blanket" but I'm calling this one "Zahra's Blanket."  

When a co-worker and his wife celebrated the birth of their first child, I was commissioned to to a blanket for them.  What impressed me most was the involvement of the father on this project.  He went to my blog, and picked out this blanket, chose the colors and asked me to alter the blocks so that his daughter's name go on the blanket.  He even consulted on the font of the letters.  It was a total collaboration.  

Knitting it in one entire piece was easier the second time around after finding yarn bobbins from Knit Picks.  I got it done in time for Mother's Day.  It was a big hit.
