FO Friday: For the Modern Baby

My nephew Ethan turned one earlier this week, so of course I couldn't resist crocheting a few things from my favorite new book (Modern Baby Crochet) to celebrate! I started with the big project, the Asymmetrical Basket-Weave blanket. I chose my favorite superwash yarn, Berroco Vintage, and whipped up this blanket in just 12 days! Here is a shot of it blocking in my yarn room:
...And a finished shot - I can't believe how well it turned out! This is the biggest crochet project I've ever attempted, and I have to say I was a little nervous about it. However, it turned out well and I know that it will be well-loved for years to come!
I had purchased an extra skein of yarn when I placed my WEBS order; since I was subbing in a yarn, I didn't want to run out! I ended up not needing my 'safety' skein of yarn, so I used it to crochet a matching Owl Hat!
