When I found out that my good friend L was KU, I decided that I wanted to make her a baby blanket. I have found that making a blanket/similar item for friends who are KU makes it a little easier to deal with my lack of children.
Anyway...I originally found a pattern for a rag quilt to make for L. The only problem is that all of the fabric that I like is quite expensive...meaning this blanket would cost much more than I am willing to spend on her. Other options that I have thought of are to crochet a baby blanket, just make a receiving blanket or bibs, or buy something from her registry. I just can't decide what to do...part of me is leaning towards crocheting a blanket, part of me thinks I should find another pattern, and another part says to just do something more simple.
If you have any ideas or want to help me with my decision, check out my poll or leave a comment. I would love to get some feedback!
