For My Unborn Grandson

I am starting a baby ripple afghan for my unborn grandson who will be here at the end of this May. So since he will be almost a summer baby I wasn't sure if I wanted to crochet him an afghan until I found this yarn. It just seems thinner to me and much more softer for a newborns little face. So I think that it could still be used when he is born. What do you think? Also what do you think of the yarn? Isn't it so neat? I've never used this type of yarn before. The picture will enlarge when you click onto it.
I just happened to stumble across it at JoAnn Fabric store. I seen the pattern on the paper cover of the skein. So all I had to do was buy the four skeins of yarn that it required. So I like how this pattern came to me while not really looking for a pattern. Because when I'm looking for one I tend to have a problem with making decisions on which pattern to choose from. I'm very picky and choosy when it comes to patterns because I don't crochet all the time. But I'm hoping that this blog will change that. So the patterns that I do chose, I want them to be perfect.
On the downside to this spontaneous find of a pattern is that it is to easy. It's for beginners. And therefore I'm not learning. I like patterns with a slight challenge. Maybe with a new stitch or something like that. But this pattern is pretty much your standard double crochet stitch throughout the whole pattern. But that's ok I guess. The good side to it is that it won't take me long to finish it. But anyway, enough blabbering and here is the beginning of the baby blanket. And of course I will post it to show you when I am finished. Which shouldn't be to long. I do love the yarn though and I would definitely use it again. It's so soft, I would love to make a scarf for myself using this type of yarn. It's sooooo soft.

I'm sure there will be lots of times to use the blanket in the summer.. especially when napping with the AC on.
It's going to be gorgeous and really does look very soft.
