baby blanket

Wow, it's been awhile since I last blogged.  Not a whole lot has been happening here.  Lately, the weather has just been rainy and cloudy.  I tend to be lazy and not very motivated on cloudy, rainy days. 

Over the last 5 -6 years I have accumulated a lot of yarn.  Most of it is acrylic, nothing too fancy.  I have gotten to the point where I told myself I am not allowed to buy anymore yarn until I use up what I have (or at least some of it).  I looked through patterns on Raverly and put a bunch in my queue.  One of the patterns I wanted to try was a baby blanket.  Actually, I have a few baby blanket patterns in my queue.  I know quite a few people that are having babies in the next few months so this is a perfect time to try them out.  The blanket that I am featuring today was made for a friend that is having a baby in July (It's a boy!) and her shower is this weekend.  It took me a lot longer to make the blanket than I thought it would, but it turned out nice.  Hopefully she will get a lot of use out of it.  The pattern can be found here.

   Below is a sneak peak of the project I am working on next.  It should be done by next week.
   I also have another baby blanket in the works.
