I have to say, everyone I know at church is having a baby boy. This is going to be the third baby blanket I am crocheted so far. I am about half way done-I'm going to do at least 1 more sections of the white and the variegated blue and green yarn (but might take 2 more) and then an edge. I haven't decided what kind of edging to do though. I love this pattern! And the reason why I love it is that it is safe for baby. The blanket is not dense; it's light and airy, and if baby somehow move the blanket over to his/her face, they won't suffocate. I have to thank Teresa for this drop shell pattern. She has lots of tutiorals on youtube and she taught me many stitches and patterns. Thank you Teresa!
Here is a close up shot of the pattern, and it takes three rows to complete the shells. I am sorry if the picture isn't the best, but I am not a professional photographer.
I come to realize if I devote my time on monday, tuesday and wednesday for cleaning, I have all the time on thursday and friday to work on projects such as this one. I love doing projects that are on a deadline because I am more focused to get it done. I tend to have a short attention span while doing a project, and tend to get bored with it very fast. So if I don't have a deadline; the current project becomes a Unfinshed Project and usually sits there for months or even years! My poor mother has been waiting for her lapghan for God knows how long; but her one year anniversary for her kidney is coming up so just maybe she'll get one. Well off to eat lunch! God bless!
