I chose 3 shades of purple and a cream. There's something quite satisfying about a nice monochromatic color scheme. I think I'll be doing more monochrome. Anywho, I really enjoyed working with the colors. Plus, I was able to use up some of my yarn stash (which is always nice). Since I knew this baby's gender, I chose to use a scalloped edging instead of the original reverse single crochet to make it more girly.
The baby shower was about 2 weeks ago and they loved the blanket! I was secretly hoping that some of the guests would ask me to make them one, but alas no one did. I got lots of compliments tho. So hopefully in the future someone will remember me and my awesome crochet skills :)
