A whisper

I heard some exciting news on New Years day.
We are going to have another grandchild, and as I was packing my bag for Auckland I hurriedly put in some wool and a crochet hook in case there was the odd hour that I could dream up a new baby blanket.

I started this square one night , but still wasn't sure if it was what I was wanting......


so the next night I started a ripple blanket,





and I am very pleased with the result. It is lovely and soft and will be just right for the little one coming in September.
