I don't like Minky.

Cute and cuddly? Yes.
Fun to work with?
No.

But
I am excited about how this baby blanket turned out.

It's not for me to keep, but there is a similar one in the works for Baby C.
Minus the Minky.

I just made a baby blanket with this for the first time this week too and it was so hard to work with. It probably doesn't help that since I didn't have enough for the back I patchworked it with flannel. Ridiculous!

Love your blanket. Minky has a bitof a learning curve I think. It's so soft and well worth it though,, isn't it.
