Ok, I actually finished this last Saturday while watching the Olympics, but "Friday Finish" sounds better, huh? This will be baby's first afghan! Its so soft and cuddly I may stick it in the diaper bag to go to the hospital too. All yarn is from Joanns (Bernat Baby Sport) and the variegated blue is my favorite! I saw yesterday that its also in pink and a few other colors which is good to know. AND Bernat now makes it in a big skein.... which I usually go for instead of the tiny skeins.
As I've noted in other posts, I used two different stitches... alternating a Front Post Double Crochet and a Back Post Double Crochet for that super cozy waffle-weave type look. Finished size is about 30" x 40".
I edged the entire blanket with about 4 rows of single crochet stitches... and have I said I LOVE this blanket? Erm, afghan... I think my new little one will love it too :-)
Now, who wants to teach me how to knit????
