SH-H-H-H!! It's finished!!

I had put down crocheting on this baby blanket in November in order to knit, crochet, and sew my Christmas presents, so when I heard the shower was already January 23rd, I was in a bit of a panic, but I re-learned the pattern again, and got it finished! I used Bernat's Softee Baby yarn in White, Fresh Green, Peach/Light Blue, and Lemon...I alternated the Peach and the Light Blue just in case...
I had never done a zig zag pattern before and really paid attention to my counting...I'm pleased that the little eyelets are lined up perfectly...then again, I don't think the baby will be able to tell!! Once I got going with the pattern, it was relatively easy...just rows of alternating double and single crochets.

Such a soft, pretty little blanket that I'll be so happy to give!!
