I'd like to say that by crocheting such a boyish blanket I had some kind of epiphany as to the sex of my avocado-sized belly snatcher, but that wasn't the case. I actually had a really groovy rainbow baby blanket in mind, but Joann's completely screwed up my order (and by screwed up I mean cancelled it, just as the yarn went OFF sale). So, with an itch to make something NOW, I turned to what I had, which is yarn that's almost as masculine as the first one was feminine, and made this bad boy:
It only took a couple hours (double crochet works up fast), so if it turns out this little avocado is actually a girl, then back to the hooks I go. I do love this yarn though - the blanket is as snugly as a teddy bear - and it's nothing fancy, just Red Heart Soft in Icy Pond.
And now, the bump:
(interesting tid-bit: my stomach was the size it is now at 20 weeks with K. hmm....)
