Baby

Sooooo … 3 people I know had baby girls in December, so I went a bit blanket-crazy. I also have been addicted to crocheting, so they’re all granny square blankets.

I started off with this set of squares, then when I pieced them together, I decided I didn’t like them that much, so I sent the squares and the blanket off to a charity that makes blankets for NICU patients.

Here are some of the other squares I made and sent out. I love these!

This was the first blanket I made. I started it a long time ago when 2 friends were pregnant. One I thought was having a girl, so I started the red, pink and white blanket, and then I realized she was having a boy! I started a blue and white one for her, then I gave up on both. (And my other friend ended up having a girl!)

So when a neighbor of mine told me she was having a girl, I quickly finished the red, pink and white one:

Then is when I decided to make blankets for the other girls coming in December. Baby Penny came first, and I finished her blanket in 1 week. It’s made out of Jo-Ann Sensations’ Cuddle, double stranded. I do like this yarn, and it’s pretty cheap, soft and easily accessible.

And I just finished the blanket for my niece, Josie. No picture yet, but it’s this pattern made out of Lily Sugar and Creme. I’m still weaving in the ends, then I’ll send it off.

While I was making Josie’s blanket, I started another one with the Jo-Ann Sensations Cuddle ends. I then bought some more, and am getting close to the end of that one. Pictures soon! I’m not sure where I’ll send that one – no babies on the horizon for me except my neighbor’s daughter, but she’s having a boy so I smell a new blanket in the works!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

    You’re a machine! They look darling.

    Sorry to be so late on this – read it on the iPhone ages ago and then couldn’t get it to flipping post.
