Its been a while since I blogged and it feels like I do not know what to say anymore. Things happen and I think, I must write about it. I write the entire blog post in my head . When I do sit down to write, my mind goes blank!
My baby sister is expecting her fourth baby anytime now. I’d planned to make a blanket for her baby . I do not know how it happened, it just plain slipped my mind !
Only when we got the news that she might be going into labour, I realized I hadn’t made anything for our new nephew! Omg!
I completely panicked.Luckily I had some Bernat Baby Coordinates yarn in my stash. Grabbed that and ran to my go to pattern, Deneen’s Bubble Baby blanket and finished the blanket in a day!
I used two strands held together and a huge N hook
Almost every baby in our family has got one blanket made from that pattern.Always used two strands with a N hook ,with the other blankets I’d made too.
I used a different coloured yarn for the edging. On one side the pattern continued in a different color , doubles up as a border, and on the other side, its simple SC around. I opted for this, because I did not have enough yarn.
I took it along with me in our car ,as we ran about town doing things that had to be done, like paying school fees, phone bill, etc . I did end up with a sore thumb working with my N hook.
I was very pleased that I finished in time before my aunt and Uncle’s visit and didn’t run out of yarn . My aunt and Uncle will take it to my sister to wrap the newborn with some handmade love.
