Miracle of miracles! I finished the baby blanket yesterday afternoon. I am so pleased with how the blanket turned out. However, knitting with cotton yarn is problematic for my arthritic hands. I have to pace my knitting and not do too much at one sitting. My hands prefer wool.
I wrote a long list of what I'd like to knit for the granddaughter-to-be and the grandson from now until the end of the year. I need to focus and knit! I ordered more yarn that should be here by the end of the week to make a baby sweater and hat. Also I want to make a smaller blanket that is perfect for the baby carrier in the car.
What are you working on this week?
That is such a pretty pink and your grandchildren are going to be so well wrapped in handknits!ReplyDelete
Oh that's beautiful 😍ReplyDelete
What a beautiful blanket Karen! Luck grand-daughter to be. My hands bother me when I knit with cotton too - it's hard! Can't wait to see your new yarns and learn what you will be knitting next.ReplyDelete
A precious blanket. Baby knitting is my favorite to knit. I just need babies to knit for now.ReplyDelete
Your granddaughter's blanket is beautiful. Baby knits are just so much fun to make. They are *almost* instant gratification. Can't wait to see all the cute things as you make them.ReplyDelete
That blanket is so pretty. Similar to one I recently made for a good friend's daughter who is expecting. I too have made a list of items I want to knit/crochet for my granddaughter and grandson . I am in the middle of a sweater for my granddaughter and want to make a stuffed pup for my grandson. So many cute things to make, so little time.ReplyDelete
The 2nd photo is lovely! In your 1st photo, I thought you had yellow and pink in the blanket. I should start a baby blanket project! I did a granny square blanket while pregnant last (for my now 4 year old son).ReplyDelete
Beautiful, Karen! I imagine that will be a well used blanket to snuggle that baby girl! And go you for your knit list for your grands!ReplyDelete
It's such a beautiful blanket, Karen! and how wonderful to imagine your granddaughter and many other babies wrapped in that loving embrace. xxoo.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful blanket! I have loved knitting for our small people. Right now I have socks and a sweater on my needles - both are for me!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful blanket. That new little one will be wrapped in your love. I hope the new yarn arrives soon.ReplyDelete
Your blanket is just lovely. Can't wait to see what other baby items you plan to make in the year ahead. When i put hand knits on my tiny grands they look so comfortable....much better than stiff store bought items.ReplyDelete
