I heard that our local mission needed baby blankets for the layette sets they send to the local hospitals. They just donated about 15 sets last week, and were in need of more blankets. I had several small scraps of pretty yarn, and started on a pentagon shape. Eventually, I decided to make it into a star shape. It is just the right size for a cover for a newborn, or to use in a baby carrier. I was pleased with the combinations of colors.
