Not the Baby Blues

Here's a thank you gift for I made for my neighbour.  A sweet little pram blanket for her six month old baby boy.  
It's made using the same Heidi Bears African Flower pattern I used before.  And joined on-the-go also using Heidi's method.  I used Stylecraft Special DK yarn and a 3.75 ml hook, my hook-of-choice for DK yarn.
Considering that I've only used three colours (light blue, turquoise and white) I'm very pleased with the result.  African Flowers are surprisingly easy and relaxing to crochet and lots of examples and documentation can be found online.  Do have a look at the African Flowers Flickr Group.  The joining method was also very simple and forgiving of slight irregularities. 
Here's the reverse side, also very pretty in it's own right.  I am now working on another colour combination...more to come soon.
