I am busy busy busy with presents for Christmas.....and a cable beret for me. Will reveal those later as they are completed. As the weather here is so dank and cold and gloomy, I thought I would show something very cheery. It is a little baby blanket I made over the summer for a friend's first baby. I had just finished my first giant granny stripe and thought the baby granny was a good way of using up the left-over yarn. Granny stripes are so quick to do and this little one took no time at all. Before I knew it it was finished and posted off to Devon for little Lily.
I knew that the blanket was for a girl baby so that made it easier to select the colours. Whereas the big granny was randomly striped, with this one I wanted hot pink stripes separated by bands of cooler colours. I really like the way it turned out.
As you can see, I took these pics in my garden on a glorious summer day. I remember it being so hot!!! Well, I think little Lily might be glad of this snuggly blanket now.
PS Thank you for your kind comments....I LOVE to get comments xx
