Yes I am proud to say that I have become a great aunt again. I now have great nieces (3) and nephews (2) with one more on the way. This sudden baby boom has inspired me to make warm and cuddly blankets for all the new babies. Here are the two newest for the girls:
This blanket is knit with size 14 needles and based off a diagonal wash cloth pattern and the 4 hr Baby Bias blanket by Lion Brand. I wanted to make them just a little more personalized so I added the Big Sister/Little Sister iron on to the lower right corner of each blanket. I was originally going to have the square embroidered but that idea was quickly becoming a disaster. So on about the fourth trip to the craft store my son and I found these. I could not be happier with how they turned out.
