It's been years--maybe eighteen?--since I crocheted something using soft yarn. I had my cotton thread project there for awhile, but just hadn't gotten involved in a fuzzy project.
So you know where I'm going with this, right? I got some beautiful cream wool yarn from my stash to welcome a new baby later this month. I did a large square of single crochets, then went around the outside making a row of eyelet, then I made a sort of scalloped edging. It's all very informal, but strung with a tonal satin ribbon, I think will welcome baby very well!
