Ahhh, babies. Everyone is having babies. Not me. I'm having wine and sushi and very much happy.
HOWEVER, I do love me some crocheting. I started this blanket a while ago, and its sort of just been a slow process. However, the baby came a few months early (she's great!! and awesome!! and so wee!!) so I had to get on it.
I used a pattern I got from the Lion Brand website (see it here) but I tweaked it a little bit (added wider bands for the solid colors, thin band of the multi). It really was super easy, and turned into some great lunches outside, crocheting and listening to npr podcasts.
