I have fallen in love with the Granny Stripe Blanket pattern over at Attic24. Although I am still working on my blanket sized granny square I am itching to spread my newbie crocheter wings and try something a little more challenging. Not too challenging though, so I have limited myself to a baby blanket for my first forray into the vast crochet world outside of my little land of granny squares. I have chosen to use the same yarn as Lucy (Stylecraft Special DK) for this HAL (thats a hook along apparently!) in Lemon, Spring Green, Sherbert and White. It really is lovely and soft (and so, so affordable) and the colours make my heart sing.
