A friend of mine is having a baby girl! Her shower is this weekend back in my home state, and sadly I will not be able to be there. I am bummed about this as I am (and always have been) a bit baby crazy and just LOVE baby showers.
About a month ago I started crocheting a baby blanket. I love to crochet, as it is so relaxing. I started making baby blankets about a year or so ago for friends and family. Now I feel like every baby needs a baby blanket by me!
The funnest part about making this blanket was that my friend knows she is having a girl. I have been making gender neutral blankets for a while now so this was particularly exciting. We only have little boys in my family now (who I love immensely!) so I am a little obsessed with the idea of a baby girl! So the blanket I made is pink and purple with a scalloped edge.
I'm a little bummed I won't be able to see her open the gift at the shower, but oh well. It just feels nice to be a part of a beautiful new life.
