Neapolitan or Mint Chocolate Chip?


Inspiration can be found just about anywhere! Autumn and I are busy crocheting baby afghans. Hers is for a soon to be born baby Isaac who happens to have a sage green and brown nursery. Mine is for a soon to be born Lydia. I considered going with purple for her, but the Neapolitan colors were too delicious to turn my back on.

I love them. Love them. Both of them. They're modern and classic all in one.

And I love the title of this post! :)

What beautiful colors you chose! I never would of thought of those for a baby's nursery but they actually work very well together. Great job!

They are both so pretty! I can't seem to get into my knitting while it's so hot outside.

Beautifully started! I can't decide which I like best, but the names certainly suit them!

It must be so wonderful to be able to sit and work on a project with your grown girls. To share a passion with them, and time. What a wonderful thing to have!
