Is It Really Almost Thanksgiving?!

Where did 2011 go?  This year was pretty slow for me as far as crocheting goes.  Ever since I completed the Mystery Afghan Crochet Along last year, I’ve been gravitating towards more and more blanket patterns.  I   made a little earthy green and taupe baby blanket for a coworker who was expecting (photos below).  I’m excited about this one because my photo was featured on the Ravelry pattern page!
I’m also pretty excited about the free Hither Green Throw pattern I found on the Lion Brand website.  I completed one in shades of blue & brown and I’m working on another right now in pinks & greens to give away as a Christmas gift to a very special little girl.  I’m working on sewing the squares together right now (the most dreaded part) and then all that’s left is the border.  Hopefully I’ll get some pictures of both up soon and you can let me know what you think about them.
