Baby time again

My daughter’s friend had a baby boy last weekend, the card has already been sent but i’ve just finished off the blanket which I have been knitting.

The card uses an image and background papers from Teddy Friends cd by Peerless designs. It’s all printed onto pearlescent paper to give a nice sheen to it.There’s a narrow mat of silver foiled card behind the image.SAM_0915

The inside has the same image suspended on fine wire in an aperture.SAM_0920

The blanket is in white and to finish it off I managed to crochet a single chain into each of the holes around the edge. This is done in pale blue and gives it a nice fresh look. SAM_0925It measures about 27 inches square and is knit from corner to corner, increasing each row until the size is achieved then decreasing each row.

SAM_0924This little fellow just had to get in on the act but he’s staying with me.

Beautiful card and blanket, Sue. I love the inside of the card.

Been knitting myself (not knitting MYSELF! LOL) just recently. I've made a wrap and am on with another. I'm not the quickest nor most experienced knitter in the world, but I am really enjoying it.

Thanks so much for showing us your lovely work.

Love Joan xx
