What are you most proud of? My daughter and son-in-law decided to wait until birth to see if it was a boy or girl. I crocheted this blanket suitable for either gender. The pattern is a traditional pineapple. Once "he" arrived, Simon, rode home from the hospital in it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure all your yarn comes from the same run so there are no variations in color. Take time to do a sample to check your gauge.

What a gorgeous wrap for your new grandson - he looks so cuddly in it - your crocheting is so even - well done.

Many thanks Ladymax! I'm following your example and plan to make baby hats for NICUs while recovering from upcoming surgery. If I can't quilt, I'll crochet!! :D

Jean, I hope your surgery is not too serious and that if it has taken place that you are fine. I will keep you in my prayers. You can crochet while you cannot quilt and I will continue to quilt because I can no longer crochet. Keep well.
