Babiana Baby Blanket




I loved crocheting this baby blanket - it looked so pretty right through - from the start of the project to the end! So satisfying .......

But there is one small problem.

I like it so much that I really don't want to give it away ! Do you ever do that?

Almost everything I make is gifted ~ to family, friends and charities that I support.

So what to do?

I didn't write out the instructions - I just made it up as I went along. So should I make another, and write up the pattern this time?


 

 
Whisper  - tiny writing
 
maybe I should start a 'baby hope' chest - for a future grandchild .....
 
....... and put this in the bottom ....... ?

  1. Keep it and make another Marianna it's beautiful. I have lots of baby items I've made and didn't want to give away they fill two drawers and a suitcase and I'm still hoping.:) xx

  4. Beautiful blanket Marianna. I love the 'denser' blankets - little fingers and toes can't get caught up. :) Love the idea of a bay hope chest. When we told my Mother-in-law she was to become a grandma, after the initial excitement, she disappeared upstairs and came down with a beautiful round blanket she had previously made. That grandbaby is now 18 and she keeps eyeing the little baby knits I make and has said 'my baby will be the best dressed baby' - maybe I should do the same and start a hope chest. Just 'hope' it wont be needed for a few years. Thank you for all your beautiful patterns. XX

  5. I have made a few baby blankets as my daughter and nieces will soon be at the age for producing babies. I know it will be hard to give them away though.

  6. It's beautiful Marion and YES I think you should do another and write up the pattern. My crochet skills aren't up to this standard but I am working on them and yes put this one away for your future Grandchild it might happen sooner than you think. xxx

  7. I also play the waiting - patiently game, keep it all to yourself Marion safe and ready for the day it's required. Don't do a pattern and don't make another - special and unique just the one ever. Roamin-in-the-gloamin x

  9. Make another just because you enjoyed it so much! Definitely keep it/them and when the time comes it will give you so much joy giving them away to that special baby ☺
