Saturday I finished the baby blanket I was working on for my cousin’s newest grandbaby, and none too soon since Aaron Seth was due today but arrived the 18th of November! I’ve seen pictures and Aaron is gorgeous! Mom and baby are both doing fine.
I used the Simply Stripes Baby Blanket pattern and crocheted the blanket with Red Heart Soft Baby Steps Yarn Blue Earthand Bernat Softee Baby Yarn, Pale Blue. The blanket is gorgeous and oh so soft, but I did not care for the pattern as much as I thought I would and I probably will not use it again.
I’ve been working on Liana’s Horses & Ribbons afghan and have only 20 more rows of the base blanket to complete! Then I can begin on the cross stitching, which is going to take quite some time. There’s no way I will have it done for Christmas, so I’m planning it for her second birthday. Rebecca is providing me with a list of items Liana needs for Christmas, so I will be doing a little bit of shopping this year! Fiona’s present has already been purchased, although I know I’ll have to do some more small bits because Grandma just can’t resist!
