Lacy scallops

About a year ago, my neighbor bought a dozen skeins of yarn in the hopes she would learn to knit. Unfortunately, never panned out. With piles of yarn just sitting around, she realized she needed to do something with it. So the other day, she asked if I would make her a blanket. And of course I agreed! Four days later, here's the result:

Because this was a fuzzy yarn, it's hard to see the stitches, but I used a method called lacy scallops - small shells that form a delicate pattern. And don't let the stitch fool you - even though there are open gaps between stitches, this blanket kept me quite warm while making it!
