Off the hook, so to speak...

Today was my stepdaughter's baby shower, and now that I'm back I can finally show off the baby gift I made for my impending grandson.

The pattern is from the Leisure Arts Our Best Baby Afghans book, and the yarns I used were a generic aqua I've had for a long time, and Wintuk "Summer Breeze" Ombre. I think it turned out pretty well, and DsD seemed to really like it.

I actually finished this almost two weeks ago, but couldn't show it off yet because DsD occasionally reads my blog and I didn't want to spoil the surprise.

It also certainly kept my fingers nimble, switching between the size K crochet hook I used for this, and the #8 steel hook I'm using for DD's veil!
