Granny Square Baby Blanket

First of all, I can't believe it's been almost two months since my last post :/  This year is going WAY too quickly for my liking!  I have been fairly busy too and I've not had as much time for my yarn creations as I would have liked but I've managed to find some time for it!

I've got another friend who's currently got a bump and her baby shower was today!

I decided to make her a blanket.  So I put my thinking cap on...hmmm, I've never made a granny square anything...hmmm what if I made a granny square blanket?!  Genius!!

I've never even made a little square for a blanket let alone one huge square that would be a blanket in itself!  So I found a pattern on Ravelry by Lion Brand Yarn.  I ordered the yarn and seeing as I had a long return  journey to the Philippines the following week (18 hours in total; 12 hours, 2 hour stop over, 3.5 hour connecting flight) I thought it the perfect opportunity to kill that flying time.

I loved the airplane seats on Singapore airlines, as well as the main pocket there were little ones on the front of it which came in handy as little yarn holders!

That's all the background story - after lovingly doing double crochet after double crochet I finally finished it!  I just hope my friend and her ickle baby boy like it :)
