Started a new project... finally!

I haven't crocheted much in the past year. After moving last year, trying to make this new house a home, and simply having my time occupied by other things, I just didn't feel much desire to. But I recently found out that my best friend's niece is pregnant again, so I started a new blanket for her. She's only about 9 or 10 weeks along, so she has no idea what sex the baby is - so I chose a gender-neutral color.

It's going to be just a run-of-the-mill granny square afghan, but the yarn I'm using is American - you just can't find yarn like this out here. It was one of the many things that I'd inadvertently left behind when we moved from the US to the UK, and my grandmother sent it to me last summer.
