One of my coworkers is pregnant and going on maternity leave this week.  We're throwing her a shower on Thursday, and I decided to make her a blanket.  I used white Caron SS and blue/green/white variegated Bernat baby yarn.  It's a simple "open" ripple pattern, and because the yarns are a slightly different weight, there's a neat texture to the blanket.  I decided to throw in a hat as well, which I did with a strand of each.  I made up the pattern as I went along, and threw a bobble on top, last minute.  I think it's cute Smiley  My mom suggested I make the blanket bigger, but I made a similar size blanket for another pregnant friend, and she said it was the perfect size for the car seat, so I figured I'd stick with a smaller size.  It's about 2 1/2 feet long, and a little less than 2 feet wide.

I'm putting the blanket and hat into a "bedtime" themed box, with Johnson's Bedtime Bath wash and lotion, washcloths, and the book "Goodnight Moon."  I know babies aren't supposed to sleep with hats and blankets, but I think (I hope!) she'll appreciate it.

Anyway, pictures!

Wow, that's really nice!  I particularly like how you did the little afgan - the variegated rows look like leaves, or waves, and it's just beautiful.
