I have also been crocheting an afghan for a baby gift. I got a bit carried away and really liked this pattern so I just kept going.....and the afghan kept growing. Most new Moms have a lot of small baby blankets anyway, right? The baby won't be able to lift this one until she is old enough to start school. I still like it because it is bright and happy and plan to give it to her anyway.
Hope you are finding some time to stitch today!!!!!
