crafting with grandma - Noah's Ark Baby Blanket for Shane!

I finished the baby blanket I was making for Shane (he is due to make his arrival on - or around - August 2nd!), so I thought I'd show you a few photos of the finished project!
 I used Red Heart Anne Geddes Baby yarn in Bluejay, Boutique Unforgettable yarn in Dragonfly and Botique Changes yarn in Aquamarine for the water . . . I wanted it to have different shades and textures so as I crocheted it in a zig-zag stitch it would have the "look" and "depth" of "real" water. I used Red Heart Baby Clouds yarn in Blue Skies for the sky and then I used bits of this and that to make the giraffe, elephant, dove, turtle, fish and the ark. 

I, of course, added a heart in the top corner as I put a heart on everything I make for the boys! :-) <3

So, this is the baby blanket for Shane - you can make one by choosing whatever yarn you want and using a simple zig-zag crochet pattern, and then crochet the critters and ark - I looked on Pinterest for patterns for some of these and just "guessed" at how to do it for others. If you make one, I'd love to see a photo! :-)
