Baby Blanket

We’ve had a manic few weeks with Christmas, New Year, daughter’s and in-laws birthdays and now we have a new addition to the family. My Brother and Sister-in-law have just had a little boy.  As they hadn’t found out the sex beforehand, and he arrived 2 weeks early, I had to be quick making his gift.

I decided to make a blanket for a change.  I usually make knitted toys, in particular an octopus, but as his older brother already has one I thought I’d try something different.

Blue blanket edge detail

I found some lovely blue variegated baby yarn and put together with a plain pale blue yarn I made a huge granny square blanket with a few stripes and a scalloped edge.

I loved making this and it’s so warm. I hope they like it.

I loved the design too, so I think I might make some more.

Happy crafting
