I haven't done much baby knitting in the last few years. Lets face it - most of my friends are my age or a bit older and we are done with that phase of life. I love the fact that some of my friends are getting to the Grandparent stage of life. One dear friend who lived near me in NY is about to become a grandma again. Her daughter who is expecting was 6 years old when Nicole was born. She was so excited to help me and I knew she would be a wonderful mom one day.
Well, the day is almost here and she will be having her own little baby. So of course I had to knit something. My favorite is baby blankets because you just can't have enough of those. I have been gravitating towards the crocheted granny square. Mostly because it works up real quick and my favorite blanket from my childhood was a granny square.
I grabbed some leftovers from another baby blanket I had worked on started crocheting.
I had the teal and the purple but I needed to add something to it to brighten it up. So I went with orange. I love how it looked. The colors above a better representation of how it actually looked. The sun sorta faded the pics below.
I started it while I was on the cruise and within a few days it was done. It's not huge. Just a good size to through in the stroller while going for a walk.
She was thrilled with it!
And we are done with baby knitting. At least for now.
