Lap Blanket with Palm Trees

Now that I have just returned from a quick holiday where I was surrounded by palm trees, I find this blanket particularly entertaining.  I could quite easily get attached to this particular blanket, but I have to give it in to the church knitting group today so that it can be donated to a local hospital, where it will be given to a patient suffering from dementia.

I have sewn on a few large buttons, which together with the palm trees are designed to keep restless hands busy.

This palm tree has lost a coconut.  I'm glad I wasn't sitting under it at the time.  Just last week I had the novel experience of just missing being hit by falling dates.  The sparrows above me were having a feast and didn't care who got pelted.
