Welcome Avery!!

My friends Steve and Janie welcomed Avery into the world on July 22 - Mom, Dad and Baby Avery are doing fine and they are a beautiful family!!

Deciding to make a baby blanket I started one in cream, didn't like the pattern, and started another one - went to get more yarn to finish it and picked up some pink yarn since Janie and Steve were having a girl - the mint green also looked so soft and pretty (and the store was having a great sale!) so that came home with me too. Figuring that babies soil things quickly I thought multiple blankies might come in handy. After the cream, pink and green ones were finished I used the scraps to make one more that turned out to be my fave.

I hate when I make a mistake and have to yank a round out from the beginning - ugh.

Welcome to the world Avery!!
