I found a quick and easy crochet pattern for a baby granny square throw. It looked so soft and cuddly that I had to give it a go. The first one turned out soft and girly, perfect for my friend Estelle at Under A Pink Moon and her daughter Emerson. Funnily enough I finished the blanket on the same day that I received a package of hand me down clothes from Estelle and Emerson for my dear little Gigi. A perfect thank you gift to send to them.
My next throw was crocheted with autumn hued colors in a much more masculine scheme. This one seemed perfect for my dear friend Tiffany and her household of boys. Having limited amounts of each color of yarn, I had to guess if I'd make it all the way around with a certain color or not. This combined with my 2 girls running around me while I crocheted, picking up balls of yarn and unravelling things meant that I kept making mistakes and had to pull out row after row to re-do the blanket. I must have gone back about 5 times before I realized that I should only crochet once the children have gone to bed. Lesson learned.
And hopefully 2 happy friends in far away places are taking comfort in my little projects!
