I learned how to crochet when I was 13. The first pattern I learned was the granny square. You’ve probably seen them before. My grandmother had about 1,000 of them stock piled around the house.
So whenever I found out I was pregnant, I had several ideas for things that I want to make, and the first thing that I wanted to make was a blanket.
What better time to do this than over Christmas holiday!
This took me about three afternoons to complete and 3 skeins of yarn. I tried to pick a color that is gender neutral since we do not yet know if we are having a boy or a girl.
