So I found out over the Thanksgiving holidays that I have a granddaughter on the way. This is after 4 grandsons. SO finally an excuse to play with patterns that I wanted.
This is the first blanket for her. ( I have 2 other ones I am working on.) The yarn was picked by my husband and the open sky stitch came from Here is my version using Bernat baby sport yarn in tiny tulips color and size F crochet hook.
Well it is done. My oldest son is expecting his first child in September. When I asked him what his lady’s favorite colors were, he said camo. But what if it is a girl? His response was “Camo, you know camouflage.” Ok!?! So guess what I found? Pink camouflage yarn. What can I say, I am hoping for a granddaughter after 3 grandsons. Not that boys aren’t great but can you image how crazy I could go crocheting for a GIRL!
Any way I won’t know for a few more weeks if I have a grandson or granddaughter on the way. But in the mean time, here’s hoping.
I have been very busy lately with work. However, I have crocheted whenever possible to keep my sanity. The white blanket is a baby blanket for my sister who just had a daughter. The red white and blue blanket was for a friends son who wanted his own blanket after I made one as a gift for his future sister. She said he wouldn’t let go of it and slept with it. I love making things for little ones because they get so excited.
