I’ve started it and am working my knuckles off like crazy!
My new granddaughter’s baby blanket.
Usually I am a yarn snob. I like to work with natural fibres only, no Red Heart for this chick! BUT, the thing of it is…I don’t think any of the mums I knit for, give a rat’s ass about the yarn I use. They just want something that looks good and washes and wears well. A person can buy washable wool with a low itch factor but I haven’t found one that is as soft as I’d like for a baby and I;m certainly not knitting in cashere. SO this time I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone and chosen a synthetic yarn that feels SO GOOD!
BERNAT Baby Velvet in Tiny Teal.
Isnt the colour glorious?! Very mermaidy.
This is what I’ve got so far:
I found the pattern for free on Ravelry and it’s super easy and knits up quick. Exactly what this late and lazy Gigi needs. I’m on ball two already and I’m confident I can finish it before the new Bean arrives. You can find the pattern, by Lucie Sinkler – SUNNY BABY BLANKET- < HERE.
Keep your fingers crossed that I don’t suffer a horrific hand accident in the meantime, ha ha. Maybe I should get them insured…do people still do that?
The new Bean has a name now too! Olivia. I’ll be calling her Via. OV and Via.
Speaking of OV:
This kid loves selfies. He especially loves it when you use one of those silly filters that gives you puppy ears and the like. I’m not cool like that but we still managed to get a pretty good photo together anyway!
Have a FANTASTIC weekend!
Much LOVE and SQUISHY HUGS to YOUUUUU ❤
