Friends, am I getting caught up on blogging?
Baby #4 was born just three days ago (although I mailed her gifts off two months ago…), and Baby #5 was born only last week too (still working on his…)
Oh right, and Baby #6’s grandpa wants me to make something for him too…
Okay, maybe not quite yet.
ANYWAY, back to the newest baby…
Baby #4 got another cute little vest with chain-stitch flowers on it because I loved making that first one so much.
And a giant granny square blanket because those are so lovely to work on, even with all the ends to sew in afterwards…
Neither Gossy nor Bonk wanted me to send this blanket away. They were totally in love with it from the moment I started working on it.
But I still did (after washing it, of course!)…
It was so soft and squishy in addition to being bright and happy. I love granny squares and bright colors set off by neutral gray or beige! Knitpicks Brava Sport may be a little splitty to work with, unfortunately, but it’s so nice once it’s all crocheted up. I’m glad to have found a new favorite lightweight acrylic to use for future baby projects!
I have to take a break from blogging for a while now as I finish up my presents for Baby #5.
I’m 75% finished with a blanket that involves both colorwork and granny squares, but nowhere near to started on a hat and cardigan set.
But no penguin faces this time so it should be way easier!!
