I don't always take the time to upload and post pix from home, preferring to wait til I am at the BookMart & Cafe' DownTown and use their faster speed WiFi to accomplish in a flash what would take my DialUp a looooooooooooong time.
So here are two lil baby blankets that I've made for the newest member of the family, who should arrive in just a few weeks: Miss Lil Suthern Belle. She's my husband's youngest son's first child.
He and his wife chose to go with a coral and grey, with white accents theme for their daughter's room. So the first blanket pictured here is a simple garter stitch, done on the diagonal, in Caron's Simply Soft persimmon and grey. It's small, just 2'x2'.
The next is a simple 1x1 rib stitch, done in Sensation's Classic Rainbow, coral. It's also variegated with a soft grey and white. This is a slightly fuzzy fabric that is nice and squishy. It's a lil bigger, 3'x3'. mmmmmm, sleeeepeeeeee time
I also have some Caron one pounders. I thought about what to do, have come up with five or six different ideas, considered and discarded them. I think I have a solution, tho. It involves a grey hippo with white eyes and toenails on a persimmon background. This one will be crochet, from a graph of a cutely squashed baby hippo. It makes ya wanna hug her and squeeze her and call her "George".
