Crochet is Complete!
The "Heirloom Baby Blanket" is in the hand wash as I write this post. The pattern came from the premiere issue of "crochet today"
I was given a free copy of this magazine at Stitches East 2006. My friend Tanya had made the blanket the previous summer, and I loved it from the start. The fact that the pattern was thrust into my hands for free was a sign that this project had to go on my "to do" list. I waited (with my fingers crossed) to find out if my niece was having a baby girl as this lacy number is very feminine. Then I rushed to my LYS to buy the yarn. I decided on Plymouth Encore DK in a ballerina pink. I am a believer in using yarn that is machine washable when making something for little ones. I wouldn't want to add "hand wash only" responsibilities to a busy new mom's life.
I will post pictures after the shower on Sunday.
