This is my first time posting pictures cause my sista let me use her digital camera.  I seriously need to get one.

Anywho, this is the afghan I made for my daughter before I knew she was a girl. Umm, I finished it when she was a little over 12 months, she 17 months now. It took me forever because sometimes it got a little boring working with the baby yarn and I don't like changing color because I'm not very good at it.  I just did a ripple pattern that I got from bernat.  Hope you like.

I know this is pretty boring but I'm proud of it.

Thanks! I think she likes it, when I showed it too her she said "Ooooo" and hugged it but then after a few minutes grabbed her blankie.  Oh well, can't compete with "The Blankie" I'm thinking I should make her another one in a different colors for her.  Like purple or something?

that's very nice. something that helps break up baby blankets is to make a bunch of squares in different patterns.  then they look patchworky and don't feel so monotonous.

Nicely done!

You know, there is a great video clip at www.stitchguide.com on how to do color changes, it totally helped me, if you haven't seen it you should take a look.

Thanks, that was the first baby afghan I've ever made. I thought I was going to have a boy but no.  But it works for a girl, too.

carlins_mom, thanks for recommending that great site.  It sure beats trying to figure out what the books are trying to show you.

This is very cute. From a distance, the afghan almost looks like it was knitted!  Cheesy
