Baby blanket

My inclusion partner from last year will be working with me again this year. At least for part of the year as she will be out on maternity leave. I feel like I've gotten to the point in both crafting skills and time management (read: I need to take more time doing things that I enjoy and appreciate so I burn out from school less) that I could take on a small project...over summer vacation.

I saw the idea on Pinterest and have had it pinned for whatever purpose. While the original blog post is not in English, you can see the construction is double crochet rows with chained strands of color woven in. I supposed you could Google translate the website if you wanted specifics. I changed the order of the color stripes for each round and spaced out the stripes more so gray is the predominant color.

My inclusion partner told me she was having a boy, but she does not seem the type to do an entire nursery in pastel blue, so I thought that this color combination still pointed to a boy, but wasn't too babyish.

This is the first project I have done with yarn in a very long time, and I am pleased with how it turned out. I hope the recipient (both Mom and baby) feel the same way!
