Pink for Piper

My cousin's wife is having a little girl in April and I needed to come up with a super girly girl blanket.
I decided to go with a lacy feather and fan afghan made with a soft washable yarn. The Neapolitan ice cream yarn broke up the monotony of the overwhelming pinkness. I'm just not a pinky person.
The pattern does have beautiful drape.
I barely made it with the pink yarn. I think there was less than a yard left to cut off at the end. I was definitely worried those last couple rows.
But all's well that ends well, right? So here is the blanket stretched out for blocking on the twin bed in the guest room. Its nice and big, so it should last baby A for quite a while.
