Another blanket or two

I finished a baby blanket.  It’s been handed over to the new mother to be so I can post about it here.

A simple granny square made with Caron Simply Soft. This is the first baby blanket that I’ve made with bright colors.  Before they’ve always been traditional baby colors.  I love how it turned out, the yarn is very soft. I have to say though, that I didn’t care much for the yarn while I was crocheting with it.  It untwists horribly while crocheting.  I have enough yarn left to make another blanket if I change the order of the colors.

I’m making another blanket now with Lion Brand Baby Soft and in comparison, it’s heavenly to work with. No untwisting at all and it’s an S twist just like the Caron. This colorway is Circus Print.

I also finished another blanket made from Red Heart Baby Econo, a yarn that is sadly no longer made. It is also easy to crochet with. They have a similar one now but this particular colorway Rock A Bye, is out of production. It is one of my favorite colorways of this yarn, so this blanket goes into my Future Grandbaby stash. The yarn isn’t soft right out of the skein, but it softens up just fine after a few washes.
