All the baby blankies that I have knitted recently are pau. Tomorrow I’m going to wrap them and box them up and send them on their way. I’ve enjoyed knitting them and hope that the babies will all feel snuggly and warm in them. The first one is for my new grand-nephew Cash, who lives in California. He’s my brother and sis-in-law’s first grandson. Cash was born in January, and is very, very cute. I already wrote about this one, but it’s a finished object, so gets to get posted again.
Here’s a close-up of the center. It was challenging to start, but I’m glad it turned out so well.
This blankie is for my new grand-niece, Lydia, who also lives in California. She was born late last year, and is Nolemana’s sis and her husband’s grandchild. This pattern makes squares by alternating knitting and purling. Knitted with Plymouth Encore.
This blankie, also knitted in Plymouth Encore and the same pattern as Lydia’s, is for a baby yet to be born. He is the son of a special person to us named Jonathan, who for years, kept his sheep here in our pasture. We watched Jonathan grow up into a fine young man and marry a wonderful young woman named Tracy. This is their first child, and it couldn’t happen to a nicer couple.
This blanket is more of a quilt; and I made it for Lydia’s older brother, Thomas. I didn’t want to send a blankie for Lydia without having something for Thomas, too. I love this Hawaiian pattern!
