Yarn Along {15}

Photobucket

I am making great progress on the Chevron Baby Blanket. I am at the half-way point. There are seven different colors in the blanket and I am just about finished with the fourth color. I am loving the way it is turning out. And this yarn is so soft. It will make the perfect snuggle blanket for a squishy newborn! However, I now have requests, from both Emma and Caleb, for a blanket just like this one to call their own!

Last week, while sitting poolside on those awfully hot days, I managed to whip up this adorable hat and bootie set for a sweet friend of mine who is due to have her baby boy about a month after my little girl is due to arrive! Both patterns were so easy that I am definately going to have to make a few more sets - a set for my little girl and a few to have on hand when I need a last minute baby shower gift.


I am still reading Into the Wilderness. It is a great book and I really think if I didn't have so many other things on my mind at the moment, I would be able to read more of it and be done with it by now - but that is not the case. Instead, I am enjoying reading it at a slower pace and plan on finishing it as well as the rest of the series before years end. I made that one of my reading goals for the year!

What have you been working on?

  5. Knitting for a brand new babe is just the best! I knitted a bunting for our 4th baby who was born last October....wow...9 months has flown by! I still love knitting for her - there is just something about those babies! Great blanket!

  6. Hello again, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. The Owl puff pattern is free on ravelry, and knits up super quick. I added the eyes by just making two little crochet rounds. Have fun!
