Much like pineapples, I am hardcore.

I'm just starting out, so be nice!

I'm learning to crochet so that I can make a baby blanket for my godson, Zachary (due in early May). Here's my first attempt/test piece (note that the intention was for it to be square):

It's not perfect, but I think it looks pretty good! I am pretty pleased with myself!

Next I have to get started on another blanket for a baby boy due in late May, and I want to learn some sort of interesting stitch that is still close together. My first blanket is all single stitch just because a) it's all I can do, and b) baby blankets are apparently (according to my mother) not supposed to have holes in them because fingers and toes get caught so easily.

Anyone have any fun, fairly simple ideas?
