Stroller Blanket

I crocheted like crazy over the Easter weekend, and finished this stroller blanket in time to mail to Wisconsin for my friend Darchelles baby shower. Crocheting does not come as easily to me as knitting (I just need more practice!), and I ended up having to start this blanket over SIX TIMES. I was near ready to give up and choose a different pattern, when I realized that when the pattern says Single crochet in next 3 chains, it really means to do it THREE TIMES, not just once! Whoops. :) Once I figured out I was reading the pattern wrong, I was on my way. It took a lot of concentration for me, but I really love how it turned out.

(it needs a little blocking still)

This pattern was from Crochet Today, and I used the recommended RedHeart Eco-Ways yarn, in Oyster, Mushroom and Dusty Rose (its a girl!).

(I was also having fun playing with different camera apps on my iPhone)

I have some leftover yarn, and a little bit of time left before this has to get into the mail, so I think Ill whip up something extrastay tuned!
