baby blanket

Weslee's baby blanket

I started this blanket last time I was pregnant (my first attempt at something like this), and put the project on hold until I was about halfway through this pregnancy. First I made all the little white squares (I used 49), and then put a yellow border on each square. I used a basic stitch to attach all the squares, and put a little finishing border around the edge so it would look more put together. The blanket is big enough to last Weslee for a couple years, hopefully, and I get the satisfaction of having made something with my own hands for my child. It makes me feel very domestic.

And all this from somebody who only knows a basic crochet stitch :)
