In keeping with the “OMG, the school year’s almost over?!?!” panic I’m sure is taking over more moms than I, I’m in full teacher-gift-making mode. Two of Blue Giraffe’s teachers (one current, one former) had babies this school year, so I’m also crocheting baby blankets for them. I can’t resist, especially since one’s a girl. I never get to make girlie stuff! (In fact, I have to run to the store to get a skein of pink yarn…yay!)

For the baby boy, I’ve chosen this Through Any Window pattern by Laura Lynn Hanks, and I think it’s turning out quite nicely. It’s a really quick make, all in half-double crochets.
