Waiting For the Next Color!

Back in June our daughter, Hope, along with her husband Jeremy announced they were expecting their first child. Yippee!!!!! Our first grandchild, I'm soooooo excited!

The plan was to find out out as soon as possible whether the bundle of joy, be boy or girl. Sooooo I decided to start on a baby blanket. I couldn't help myself. Inspired by Maaike's ( baby boy blanket in a Chevron pattern , I began crocheting, however using pastel colors. Working with the chevron pattern, brought back fond momories of my learning to crochet at the age of 14 with this very pattern. I kept crocheting until I had to know whether the next color would be a darker blue or pink. Hmmmm

Finally , the much awaited date of "finding out" arrived. The baby cooperated and the next color is pink!!!!!

Now, I am happy as a clam crocheting away on my grandaughter's blanket!!! Did I mention I am soooo excited to be a grandma!!!!

p.s. I borrowed the idea of the yarn in the bowl from Koralee at bluebird
