I have finally finished the fourth and final baby blanket for blogger Bliss!
Not sure why I made "4" blankets. Hmm. I guess that will reveal itself later on.
I began that first one before she even was pregnant. When someone begins thinking about having a baby, and voice is given to those thoughts, well... I just go head on and get my crochet needle and baby yarn out and just start on it in faith.
Anyway fast forward a good year later...
Mrs. Bliss is having twins. She is big and swole with chirren right now. She doesn't know the sex of them, so I had to go neutral. I will probably post all four in one post soon. I just have to wash them and do some final trimming.
I asked one of our custodians yesterday "Hey, can you get me 4 of those clear little plastic garbage bags and one large plastic bag? I need to pack up some baby blankets for shipping."
So that means I am super duper close to mailing them. My goal is November 1st or round about. She is not due until December 17th, but you never know. I want them there and in her hands a bit earlier.
Anyway, I have taken pictures as I have progressed.
I like how they start... Simple yarn.
I worked on this during the furlough, so a week later, it had really come along.
Here's another photo.
And here's the final blanket.
That only took about 2 weeks. I was smoking on that! The fastest I've made a blanket is one and a half weeks because a friend needed a white blanket for her sons christening. It usually takes me about a month to make a baby blanket, especially when I am working. But since I was on furlough, I had more time on my hands. And if I'm at someone's house just hanging out, I always have my little crochet project with me.
Oh it was such a joy making these blankets. I LOVE LOVE LOVE handmade gifts. Loved-ed them.
Stay tuned for more :)
