a girly baby blanket

When my first daughter was born, I shied heavily away from the massive amounts pink that seem to suddenly descend when people find out you are having a girl. Even now, I prefer to offer her clothes to wear and things to play with that have a more natural tone. Although she did tell me the other day how nice it would be for her to have a pink horse. Ah, rebellion! 


This time around, with this new baby girl, I let a little pink in -  a nice soft shade here and there seems to suit her for some reason. I finished her baby blanket literally the night before she was born, using alternating yarns for a striped look - the pink yarn called "ballet slipper" and the other one (naturally) an undyed wool.


I was so pleased with how it came out (albeit a little small, as all my knitted baby blankets seem to end up). It's delicate and sweet with a touch of pink! Very much like our new little girly.

  1. I like that pattern, too! It looks like the wiggles happen from the holes. I am spinning my very first sheep's lamb's wool and want to make an open-type pattern. I was the AntiPink mom as my daughter was the third. At 13 months she began expressing her opinions and has worn some fashion of pink every day of the seven years since then. Your children are lucky to have you and each other. Congratulations!
