As many of you know, crocheting is one of my favorite past-times and making gifts for expecting mothers makes crocheting even more fun and meaningful. As I was working on my most recent project, a gift for a dear friend of mine, it dawned on me that I have a sweet, precious baby growing inside of me who will most certainly need a blanket!
I love crocheting gifts because as I am spending many hours putting together a blanket or whatever else, I really enjoy just thinking about that person who will be receiving the home-made item. Its a great time for me to remember how much I love them and how much I cherish their friendship, or how excited I am for their arrival (you know, when a baby is born).
Here are some pictures of other baby blankets I have made in the past:

And of course, little Saylor-man, fellow Ozark House member, needed a blanket as well.
Most of the blankets I make have stripes because though I love crocheting and have crocheted many different things, I dont often venture out into learning new stitches or patterns. But for my little spaghetti squash, I decided to learn how to make granny squares. I have always been intimidated by granny squares because they look complicated, but after watching a video from youtube, I caught on fairly quickly and started making my first project for my baby.
What do you think!?
And thats my blanket! I cant wait until my sweet little baby can be all wrapped up in it. Btw, I am over half way there at 22 weeks along and I am feeling great! This little one is kicking and rolling around like crazy. It is such an awesome yet freaky feeling.
