So, January's been a very busy month for me. Nevermind the fact that I just got done crotcheting and knitting Christmas presents for everyone. A girlfriend of mine at work is having a baby girl this February. Since I've discovered how much easier <i>**usually**</i> and heartfelt homemade gifts can be, I've decided that's the route I'm going to take from now on. So I made Lily a **i must say it** <b>beautiful</b> baby blanket. It's verrigated baby's yarn (can't remember brand), white with peach, cranberry, and green. The pictures make it look more neon than it is. It really reminds me of Rainbow Sherbet! I absolutely love the way this blanket turned out! I told my fiancee that I want a baby girl, so I can make myself a blanket!!!

Another girl I grew up with, and still occasionally see since our mom's are best friends, is having a baby boy in March. The colors they chose were royal blue, olive green, brown and white. Well, it's hard to find yarn those colors and think, "oh, what a cute baby blanket this would make!". So, I stuck with the classic blue and white. I used Bernat Baby Coordinates in Blue Bon Bon and Lion Brand Baby Soft in Baby White. I liked that they both have the shiny white threads intertwined. The pattern seemed a bit small, so mom helped me adjust the pattern to make it a little bigger, by adding one more V. Unfortunately then it turned out incredibly wide. Instead of starting all over, I just decided to flip it around so my ripples are vertical rather than horizontal. All in all, I think it turned out quite nice. I love how soft and thick it is. Quite comfy for cute babies!!!

Nice job on the blankets.  I love that rainbow sherbet yarn.  It's a great color combo.

Wow, beautiful!  I have to make a baby blanket myself for a couple I'm friends with. Hope it turns out as good as yours.  Love the second one, the blue is wonderful.

I like them both but especially the colors of the variegated one!  I love working with variegated and, for me, the brighter, the better  Smiley
