I really like the way this one turned out. These are not your typical baby blanket colors, but I think that is why I like it so much. This one was also given as a gift. A very sweet lady at church is expecting her second son. She said that the nursery would be orange and earth tones so this is what I came up with. She was so touched by the gift. She told me that this was the first blanket anyone had ever given her and it would always be special to her. That made me feel so good. I really think a lot about the person I make the blanket for while I am making it, wondering whether or not they will like it, so it was so nice to hear how much she liked it.
A friend from church found these patterns for baby hats and asked me to make them for her. I had not made hats before because I thought that they were much harder than they really were. They were really easy to make. I think I may make some more for my Etsy store.
