Whoa baby

Right now I'm attempting to crochet a baby blanket for my cousin's 6-month-old, Maya. I started sometime yesterday. I'm on second skein right now.

I used the Car Seat Baby Blanket on ravelry for inspiration. I chose to make a more traditional baby blanket, but I really liked the stitch pattern. And the color in the sample picture matched the yarn I just bought.

Here's the progress so far:

I like how lacy it looks. I plan on crocheting some flowers for it and possibly stitching 'Maya' on it. And I want to crochet the border in gray off-white too.

I can't wait to finish it.


  1. It looks beautiful, what's the yarn you bought?

  2. It's Caron Country in spruce. Not horribly expensive, especially with a Michael's coupon!
