A team member and my team lead at work are both pregnant, both due soon; but this post today is about team member. This is her first baby and she is having a girl. But she was very specific about colors; no pink. Her favorite color is purple so she is going with purple as much as possible. And of course, being who I am, I made a baby blanket. I used SmoothFox’s Heart of a Child pattern that I got to test years ago. The original plan was to do it in dark, light and a variegated yarn that contained a lot of purple. However the variegated didn’t work out so well and I ended up including pink and green. The yarn was all Caron Simply Soft, my favorite for baby blankets and I used an I hook.
