I am so in love with this baby afghan!!!
It's so soft... and snuggly... and fun... and random... and it makes me want to have another baby
Which is highly unlikely, since I already have my hands full with three little munchkins. And my crafting time would greatly decrease if I was add to the brood. Maybe it's not such a good idea after all. I wonder?
I made this baby blanket for a very dear friend who is expecting her first baby in only a few weeks... yay... a baby girl... I'm so excited!
Since I am well aware of how a household with young children operates, I wanted to make a gift which was practical in every way. It was especially important that it be EASY to care for. Ideally machine washable. And dryer-proof. Just to be certain, I have already run this blanket through my washer and dryer. It came out even nicer than it went in!
So I worked this up in a variety of different cottons reclaimed from ladies jumpers. Crocheted in random stripes. Also using random stitch types for each row. No sewing in those pesky ends either. Just trim them to a standardish length and let them fray in the dryer. Too easy.
