A New Blanket

This morning we went out for a walk to get a cappuccino.  I thought I'd take along the spring blanket I just finished for Olivia and try and get a nice picture of it.  Recently it dawned on me that you guys might enjoy seeing a little bit of Italy in my crafty pics - after all, I like to get a glimpse of life in Hawaii and New Zealand and other places through other people's blogs.  So from now on I'm going to try to include a little bit of local scenery for you.

It's a simple zig zag crochet, done with this tutorial, in cotton.  I bought the yarn at a place in Rome last year, and the colour selection wasn't the greatest so I ended up with pinks and purples.  Not my favourite, but I figure it's fine since it's one of many, many blankets Olivia will have!

And here's a behind the scenes picture of my little family waiting patiently.  You know he's secure in his masculinity pushing a pink stroller while holding two chihuahuas!

After coffee Olivia and I practiced walking for a bit.
