Crochet Baby Blanket!

 Hello Crafty Friends, How are you all doing? Enjoying your Summer I hope. Some of you may know I am (Not) a fan of the hot days of Summer. 

It's funny, I don't think my Grand Daughter is a fan of hot days either. She came in the other day and told me how hot she was. She said I'm even sweating and I don't sweat.  I had to laugh. 

Something that is hard to do in hot weather is Crochet. But my son is going to be opening up a Place for Photography and he told me that he was planning on buying a few Crocheted Baby Blankets and that they were $40.00 a piece. So I told him that if he bought the yarn that I would try to make him a few.

I had never made a Baby Blanket before but I thought I would try to make one for him. So this is my first one that I just finished.

I think It turned out pretty nice.  Hope my son likes It. I guess that's all that matters.  The yarn I used was Bernat  Baby Sport. I had never used a thinner yarn on a blanket before and this yarn had a bunch of of knots in It.   I've heard other talk about this yarn having lots of knots. So I guess it's not just the skein I used. 

So I guess I will be starting on a Blue one next. I am thinking of trying two strands at a time on the next one. Not sure yet and maybe try a different pattern.

If you would like to try this pattern. Here is the link...
