My hair stylist/colorist had her first baby!
So adorable and exciting.
In the weeks leading up to his birth, I made her a blanket.
Following a pattern found in Simply Crochet Magazine Issue 39, I made a soft, squishy blanket.
I used a new to me yarn: Lion Brand’s Feels Like Butta.
Super soft and machine washable and dryable.
I bought the big skein, >500 yards per skein and used all of the blue (in fact, I ran out so the pattern isn’t exactly even).
I plan on using the left over gray to make the kids some winter hats.
Sometimes I forget how pretty crochet stitches are.
She sent me a picture of the baby wrapped in the blanket soon after he was born (in fact, she used the picture to announce his arrival to her clients).
I know it will be well loved.
Have a great week!
