The mystery project is finished!!
I had intended to make a sweet (boring) wide blue and white striped blanket for my new nephew and had actually gotten as far as a white stripe when I showed it to Father.

I know the shape isn't quite right, but gimme a break, it's close. (c;
Isn't he cute and inoffensive?
I crocheted a 'hood' underneath the head so it could be used for a hooded blanket.
My not-so-new-and-small son modeling it.
And I've folded it up into a nicely inconspicuous square.
They will have no idea what they are about to open...
