another blanket and some future plans

I finished this baby afghan for one of my infant nieces this past weekend.  Her nursery colors are pink and green, so I changed it up a bit from my usual pink and creme trend.

Is it just me, or does it seem like I've been making a whole lot of these lately?

What?  You've noticed it too?

Well, there's a reason for that.  For the first time ever, I'm actually going to try my hand a writing up a pattern that will be for sale.  That means no "charlotte-ese" stitch talk, but rather official crochet terms written in such a way that they will be understandable to anyone who understands standard crochet abbreviations.  It's turning out to be kind of a big project, truth be told.

So, after making up four of these little guys, I think I've finally got a pattern that I feel good about.  I'm going to be making two more of these blankets, one of which will be a little less on the "girly" side, and I'll test the pattern out while making those two as well.  Then, I think I'll probably post the pattern here (for free) for a week or two, just as a little reward for those of you who do me the favor of checking in here from time to time.  After that, I'm hoping to get my graphic design ninja husband to help me put together a pdf of the pattern, and I'll list it in the etsy shop.

That's the plan anyway.  We'll see how it all turns out.

I'm linking to these parties:
