I'm going to be an aunt again. This time, there are 2 on the way. Despite the lack of history of twins in our family, I have identical twin boys and my sister is pregnant with identical twin girls. Double the fun!
I wanted to make baby blankets/shawls that will grow with the girls. I planned to follow a pattern. But apparently I'm not very good at that any more.
So I have designed hexagonal crochet motifs that are being joined to make a big hexagon. I have not chosen baby colours.
The drape is more shawl-y than blanket-y although I'm using a dk yarn rather than a baby yarn.
The colours are a little more dark & intense in real life.
I had picked out a much lighter colour for the second shawl. But having done this one first, I don't want a lighter, more basic colourway for the second. So I'm going to pick out another colour tomorrow.
I really like the dark, grown up colours here. DH is not so keen. What do you think?
