Baby blanket finished

Here's the finished baby blanket I was working on. The cream yarn is a cone of acrylic that I bought years ago at a mill outlet. It has a bumpy texture that makes it very thick and squishy. I CO with 3 stitches & added one on each side till I used 1/2 the yarn. Then decreased one stitch on each side till I ended up with 3 stitches to bind off. The yarn-over increases created holes that seemed call out for embellishing. So, using a yarn I acquired from my stash-busting friend, I wove 4 strands through the holes. Here's a close-up showing how I ended with a tassel.

Here's the label from the embellishment yarn. It's white & blue with snippets of pink ribbon, making it appropriate for either a girl or boy baby gift.
