New to the Family

I love that people continue to bring new little bundles into the world, especially given the fact that I myself am so over having babies!  The latest addition to my family was born in September, and shamefully, I am just now finishing up his Welcome to the World gifts!

I used the corner to corner afghan technique (which I thankfully have memorized because the link to that pattern was another thing lost in my stinkin' laptop crash!) and some half skeins of Red Heart from Yarn Mountain.  It measures 32"x36", I really don't know anything about proper baby blanket sizing, but it seemed to be a nice size for wrapping baby in and more importantly, still big enough for a toddler to cuddle up in.  This is my favorite color combination and stripe pattern I've done so far.

A dear friend has a little one coming at the end of this month as well.  I think I'm going to use some of the browns I have left to make his blanket, and maybe add in a little blue or green to mix it up.

Hoping to have a less cloudy day tomorrow so I can get some better photos to share.  Also, trying to learn my camera more, and admitting that I really should make a light box and learn photoshop too.  Ah well, all in good time I suppose.  As much as I'd love to learn more about taking great photos, I really love spending the free time I do have actually making the stuff!


  1. I'm delayed on some baby gifts too. You've given me new motivation :). I like the soft brown colors you used for this blanket. Nice for a baby but also a good color for when baby grows up.

  2. thanks! that's exactly what i was thinking when choosing the colors. i like to imagine him dragging it around with him til it falls apart, just like my youngest is with her blankie auntie lanikins made for her :)
