I'm a big fan of Patons Lace yarn, particularly the variegated colors of this brand. This is one of those projects that went with me everywhere I went for a month or so. The kind you pick up and work on in between other, more complicated ones that require thought and a post it note to keep track of where you are in a pattern.
A granny pattern is perfect for those times. No need to change colors, follow a pattern or sew up at the end. This will be for an upcoming baby shower where the sex is yet to be known! There is a little pink in the yarn, but not enough for a new daddy to notice. They are quite fussy about colors if a boy arrives!
This was about 5 skeins, a D/3 - 3.25mm hook with a simple, single crocheted edge.
