I, of course, decided to crochet them blankets. The first blanket was for Sierra, she had a baby girl. She choose the colors of pink and green. I love these colors. These were my wedding colors so, maybe that's why I'm partial! I made these granny squares four across and three down and it turned out a pretty good size blanket. I am so in love with the scallop edge trim so that's what I choose here.
Catie had a boy and the theme of the room she decorated was Dr. Suess. I had sooooo much fun picking out the colors for this blanket. I turned out bigger than I had planned but who cares. I picked five colors to make granny squares with and trimmed it in black as a sixth color. You can't tell in the picture but part of the trim was a picot stitch. I had never tried that one. It turned out great.
Both ladies liked their blankets and I'm getting better at making them.
