knitty gritty: baby blanket

I made a baby blanket for a baby shower I'm going to next weekend. She's having a girl and I was very excited at how it turned out! I love the pinks and orange. I bought two skeins of size 6, "Peachy" Bernat brand yarn. I used my large loom, knitting on all of the pegs but not connecting the yarn. My concern was that it would fold inward but by loosely wrapping the yarn around the pegs, it stayed flat. This was my first time making a blanket so I know what to work on for next time. The only thing I would change is making both ends look the same. The end I initially began with is slightly wider than the end I knitted off on - I know this is just a matter of practice. What I want now is a big version for me :)
