This one I finished the other day but didn't want to post it until after the shower, which was this past weekend. It's a self-striping yarn, that's probably better suited for knitting than crochet. The first couple attempts ended up in pooling patches of brown that I didn't like. I had to play with the pattern awhile to come up with a combination of double-chains and single-chains to get the striping pattern the way I wanted it. The white stripes have splashed of blue and green, divided by the cafe brown stripes. And - I forgot to take a picture of it - in one corner, there's a little heart charm. (The picture's not that great - I was rushing and didn't grab my real camera.)
And for mom-to-be, one of my college friends of over 20+ years, and dad-to-be - best wishes for a healthy last trimester, as easy a delivery as possible, and a healthy, beautiful baby.
