I'm definitely at the "everyone I know is having babies, or trying to" stage of life. It is wonderful, because I love babies! I can't have my own just yet, but I very much enjoy borrowing kiddos from my friends, and knitting for them is always a blast. Baby stuff is just cute, y'know? And it goes quickly! I can't knit blankets for all the babies around because that would take too much time, but here are a few recent ones:
Rock Chalk Wilfred, for Baby H in Kansas:
It is affectionately known as the Spiderman Blanket...
...and is really good for napping.
(All together now, "Awww...")
Purple Pinwheel, for Baby L in Oregon:
Also good for napping.
(Thanks N for the photos!)
Coco's Blanket, for Baby Coco in Louisiana:
I don't have an action shot, yet, but this is me and Coco:
She's so tiny and soft and wonderful!
I really like the pinwheel (purple) and chalice lace (green) patterns, and it wouldn't surprise me if I make more. What's your favorite baby blanket pattern?
