I've been crocheting for a couple of years now, and have been lurking on this site for a year or so from time to time.  This is my first post with a completed piece.  It's just a baby blanket, from Lion Brand's Pound of Love...off white or something or another.  It's about 3 feet by 3 feet.  I used the pattern stitch from http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/cpl-bafg.html?noImages=0, but made it to my own diminsions and I didn't add the hood.  

Sappy story alert:
I have actually made probably 12 of these, but all have been for other people.  I like to keep one on hand for those unexpected shower invites and such.  So, I was making this one last week, and my boyfriend snuggled up to me and said, "That would be perfect to wrap a baby of ours in."  I melted.   Smiley  I'll be keeping this one.   Grin

And a close up of the stitches.  Ignore the shadow.   Tongue

I have a lot of Lion Brand Homespun that I'd love to trade for something else!

hearing something like that might actually make me WANT to have a baby - right there and then. adopting one if need be.
