I left it because either:
1. I didn't buy enough yarn to begin with.
2. I used some of it for something else, (Probably didn't finish that either)
Not 1, not 2, but 3 skeins of the much needed yarn to finish my project.
The pattern is a simple shell stitch so it should work up quickly. With no babies on the way (that I know of anyway) this blanket will be sent to one of the many deserving organizations that need it.
