Baby Blanket Bingo
Earlier this year, I resolved to make blankets for my four pregnant co-workers. There's always something special about creating things for babies, and my knitting/crocheting mojo was badly in need of a kick start.
BabyAyesis was born last month, and I've already made her a hat, and her mom comes back today, and she'll have this diagonal stitch crochet blanket waiting for her.
On the Diagonal
The diagonal box stitch is a favorite pattern of mine although I haven't broken it out in a while. I made this afghan in 2004 for a friend's granddaughter, another one for my sister, and this one won a ribbon at the local fair, but I cannot remember who I ended up giving it to.
I love how fast it works up, and it makes up for a strechy and cushy piece of work.
I hope she likes her blanket as much as I do.
And Just Because Neil is Fabulous...
I have to share this video.
It brings me relief.
