The Baby shower was yesterday and in addition to this the Mom-to-be also got a quilt and two baby sweaters made by friends at the party. Lots of handmade love for this little guy already.
This time around I let the recipient pick out the color. I sent her a link to three different brands of yarn so she could see the colors available. I totally knew she'd pick this color before I even sent her the email.
I added the antique white to the border because I thought that looked better than a stark white.
Yarn - Lion Brand Baby Soft
Color - Pistachio
By the way - that maple rocker was the first thing my parents bought for the nursery after they found out Mom was pregnant with my older brother.
This one shows a little bit of detail as well as the washing instructions I always attach to baby afghans. I started doing that after I found out that one Mom was afraid to use the afghan I'd made because she didn't know it was machine washable.
