My First (Baby) Blanket Ever!

As I have said before, I am fairly new to crochet. I am almost finished with my first blanket ever. I started a blanket for myself and then found out a dear friend was pregnant. What to do other than put my new skill to use? I used Lucy from Attic 24’s Neat Ripple Pattern, which is the pattern I also used for the blanket I started for myself. I am so so glad I found her blog early on in my crochet journey. She writes the best tutorials and explains everything so clearly. As you can see from the picture, I still have all my loose ends to weave in and I think I’ll need to make 5 or so more color changes. I’m debating on whether to block it or not. I’ve never blocked anything before and don’t know if I even have anything large enough to do it on. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Another project I have done from Lucy’s blog is her Happy Flower Decoration. I wanted to make something special for my mom on Mother’s Day and this was absolutely perfect. As a beginner, it took me a while to make all the small pieces but I loved every minute of it. It has been my favorite small project yet, and of course the detailed tutorial made it stress-free.

I will be sharing my finished baby blanket before I ship it off to a dear friend and will hopefully be sharing progress of my own ripple blanket. If you have not checked out Lucy’s blog, Attic 24, do that right now for tons of cute tutorials. I am determined to one day make every single pattern.

Have a wonderful, yarn-filled day!
