Crocheted baby blanket!

I'll be posting a pattern and pics as soon as I get this finished! using the wavy shell stitch II from the Interweave Basic Crochet Stitches book, I'm making a super super cute blanket for my soon-to-be new niece! The nursery is all ocean and painted in a soft turquoise/aqua and sand. My SIL is amazingly crafty and handpainted bits and pieces on the wall, trees, sand castles, all sorts of cute things! This blanket falls in line with that. I chose Lion Brand Nature's Choice Organic Cotton in Macadamia (Sand) and Almond (foam) and Cascade Luna in Seafoam (ocean) and threw in some LBNCOC (wow! long acronym!) in strawberry and wove the ends around every once in a while as seashells in the sand. I'm very proud of this blanket and cannot wait to finish and show it off! And to share the pattern of course! :D So watch for that!!!

I have a whole line of the StarWars guys I want to get the patterns written for and them completed too. It's been hard since my youngest child has been going through some feeding issues and delays, so hopefully I'll find more time to knit and crochet to help keep my mind off all of his issues. At least I'll have projects to work on in the dr.'s office right?!
