Well today I decided to start a granny square blanket with all baby colors (light blue, pink, green, yellow, and white). So here is the first granny square I've ever made! Pattern is from the book 200 Crochet Blocks.


I made it using Deborah Norville Everyday Worsted Weight Yarn. Its super soft and acrylic which I like because I can wash it normally. I used the same yarn to make a baby sweater for a friends baby being born in August, but i stupidly forgot to take a picture of the finished sweater, so here are the pics of the pieces of it.

front right panel
front right panel and right (1st) sleeve
back, sleeve, and front panel
all parts except the second part of front panel (left side)

Here is the link to the free pattern. http://cats-rockin-crochet.blogspot.com/2011/05/cats-one-piece-wonder-baby.html

It was super easy and only took about 7 hours in total but I am a slow crocheter and made a couple of mess-ups along the way that had to be redone.
