Another Baby Blanket Tah Dah!

Here is another finished baby blanket for baby Emma...

I was planning on a yellow border but it was just to bland...

Since we know she is a girl I went with the pink.

This is my own pattern/design and I'm please with how it came out. I've never made anything without a pattern before so this was fun...

It was super simple so I guess I should write it down so I can remember what I did in case I want to make another one!

I had to add this one to show the texture!

Don't forget to vote in my latest poll at the top of my sidebar!

Where I'm Hooking Up this week.


Thanks for looking and Happy Crocheting!
