unfortunately a second one may not be accepted anyway. I have 2 blankets for my son (having rushed out and got another when he started to become very attached to teh one). Even now (age 9) he get's extremely upset if it goes in the wash, and is completely aware that i have replaced it with the 'spare' one (and they both look as awful as each other)
looks too labour intensive for me am afraid, am a slow knitter so would have to charge at least a gazillion pounds for the many years it would take me. I hope you do find someone though, it looks lovely.
