Blanket Wave or is it Baby Wave!

We are having new babies in the family! Not me! Thank goodness! My sister from another mother, my husband youngest brother’ wife is pregnant. To top this off my husband’s girly that works for him told me today she is also having a baby, both moms are due in July! I’m holding thumbs for girls! So prepare yourself, the next few months it is just going to be baby, baby!

Now for the blanket wave! I’m going to share with you all the blankets I have crocheted over the past 4 years!
This one is the one I’m currently busy crocheting for my sister-in-laws little one. The yarn I used for this I bought from Wool and Weave. I’m about to add the border and have chosen a border pattern from “Around the Corner, Crochet Borders” by Edie Eckman (#109), book available from here. As you can see I always have keen little helpers! Max
