Madelyn Rose's Blanket

Making baby blankets is something I enjoy crocheting a lot. So, when I found out that this year we have two new granddaughters joining our family in May, I  got to work choosing yarn and patterns.

 This is the first blanket I finished and it is for Madelyn Rose due May 4.

 I used Lion Brand Tweed Stripes yarn. The color is "Fruity".  I love how the color of this blanket is happy and fun.

I used a new stitch and it is now my favorite! It is called the half-double crochet stitch. 

I also crocheted a baby wash cloth to go with the little package I made up. Now, it is ready to be mailed off to Texas and I can't wait for  Danielle and Josue to see it!
