Second Shower down!

Although,I wasn't able to attend :( I really hurt my back that day (28th) and I was really upset, because I was really proud of this cardigan. My husband found a set of vintage books from 1963 meant to be a guide to Homemakers lol. There is a book about throwing great parties, planning a wedding, how to nutritionally feed your family, money management, and on and on. Its a set of like 10 books. One of the books is on Knitting, Crochet and Embroidery! So I found this pattern, its the Baby Jacket with Hood. But I improvised by using my new wonderful crochet skills, to simple crochet along the neck edge! Cool huh? I know, I'm easily amused!
So Baby Shower 3 is on March 22. I realize that I probably won't have time to complete the Pinwheel Blankie and I'm bummed about it. *sigh* Oh well, I'll have to find something else that's cute! Its a boy and I know it will be red, (the mom-to-bed loves red ). So we shall see.
