Baby boy blue (and green and gray) crochet and knit blanket

Giant Granny Square Baby Blanket

What better to accompany a diaper cake than with a handmade blanket! I had a couple of days before my friend’s daughter would receive her gift, so I thought to make a quick and easy stroller blanket. It takes just an evening or two to crochet and you can watch TV, too, while making it. I think I caught up on Breaking Bad while making it!

This little blanky gave the presentation just so much more delightfulness.
