In a house full of guys and one girl that doesn't like pink, sometimes you just need to "see some pink".
I started a new crochet project last night using some lovely, Caron's Simply Soft, soft pink yarn. Someone I know is expecting a baby girl soon and her nursery is using the traditional color palette of soft pink and light green, and of course...I am making her a baby blanket (or two). I really wanted to make a blanket that was frilly and feminine but the more I thought about it and the longer I looked at patterns, I just couldn't decide on something to make. So...after careful thought, I decided to make a Classic Baby Blanket. (You can find the free pattern here.) I've always liked the "look" of this pattern. It's simplicity... and also it's homespun look. Yet it's a classic design. I think it will appeal to the mom-to-be as she's not much of a "girlie girl" herself. At this point, I've worked one whole skein of yarn up and am getting ready to add another skein. I'm using a size H crochet hook since that's what the yarn calls for.
