Baby Blanket by Emily.....

I told you Emily had several projects she has been working on. Here is one of the other projects....a baby blanket that a friend ordered. A friend of ours needs a baby gift for a shower and he asked Emily to make a blanket. This has started a trend of somewhat because today another friend asked her to make another baby blanket for a shower he needs to attend next month.

Emily picked up this lilac yarn and then started experimenting with different size needles and stitches. She finally decided on this stitch and was able to work up this blanket in a week or so. She still hopes to put a border around the edge but she hasn't decided how she wants to do it yet. As of right now the blanket measures 26" x 34". We think it is a good size for a snuggly new baby.

Today the owner of our local heirloom shop saw Emily's baby doll dress and asked Emily if she would make a dress for a little doll of hers. I think she is going to be a busy girl this Fall!!!

I, on the other hand, have not touched a needle, thread, yarn or other for the past two weeks. I really need to make Sweet Ean some long pants....and Ethan is begging me for some jon-jons with a John Deer tractor on them. I am hoping to finish up a few things so I can get busy on new ones!!!

I love the stitch she chose and the color is perfect! We still have a much cherished hand knit baby blanket. This one is sure to be treasured, too!
I have several knitting projects that need to be finished. Maybe Emily will inspire me to get busy!
