The pattern for this blanket is called 'Cable Puff & Lace' and was in the book 'Best of Terry Kimbrough - Baby Afghans' published by Leisure Arts. The yarn is Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo in a soft grey.
Here's another of the autograph book entries, dated Aug. 1, 1929....
Who seeks for heaven alone to save his soul
May keep the path, but will not reach the goal,
While he who walks in love may wander far
Yet God will bring him where the blessed are.
