Since my niece is an alumni of Florida State University I thought I would make her some baby items in Seminole colors (mostly just to irritate my BIL who is a University of Florida fan). I crocheted her a baby blanket with a design from my own little old head. It's made from Knit Picks Swish DK in garnet heather and grain heather.
While I was at it I also made a little pair of booties as I thought they were very adorable!
I also will probably give her the granny square blanket that I've been working on for awhile since she'll be having a girl.
