4 gt grandbabies arrived between late July 2010 and Jan2011, giving me 9 gts. This last bunch each rec'd 3 sweaters and a blanket. The moms are all passing the smaller size on to the next sister(or cousin) as their babies grow. Needless to say I'm now into "bigger sizes".
Each baby had a "zip up the back" hooded a one of the 3. With our cold winter, that's been a big hit.
So adorable! And the blankie is beautiful. Ladies, I hope y'all will be open to a suggestion. When you send a pic, how about including info on it, ie, pattern make and number. You know we're going to want it.ha. I'd like the zip back hooded blanket. Also, see that ad for a cocoon blanket often but can't find a pattern. Guess I'll just make a tubular blanket and sew the borrom shut. No greats yet so I make chemo caps and baby stuff to donate, with love. Hildy
The banket is adorable. Nice work. Does anyone have a blanket patter that has hearts in every other block? I lent mine to a friend and sshe threw it out after she made it. The hearts are made in purl stiches.
...and by the way, KnitLogical, welcome to the grandmom club!! I remember feeling like I was immortal when my first grandchild was born... now he's 15 and still a darling, still makes me smile, still makes me feel like now I will live forever.
