april showers baby blanket

Finally done! It's only a tiny baby blanket but it's still satisfying to see it in one piece after toting around a pile of granny squares and a bag of yarn everywhere I go.


I'm kind of excited to start one for myself now. Since I want to make it huge though.. like queen bed size.. I think I'll make it a long labor of love and not really give myself a deadline for it so I can take my time and fit in a few squares when I have downtime. That way I don't get too caught up in it and can get other things done. :)


I made this one 25 squares (5x5) so it'd be a nice size to wrap a baby in or to set a toddler down on, but there wouldn't be too much excess all around. I bordered it with the dark gray to give a nice finished edge.


I'm happy with how it turned out. I think the momma will like it too!


Happy Monday! Sadly my spring break is over and now I have to go to class.

Hope everyone's week is starting well!

  6. Thanks ladies!!

    Hearthandmade.. I think it takes me around 10-15 minutes for four layer squares like these? I actually tried to time myself sometimes to see how many more I could do in a given time. Depends on how distracted I was. ;)
