A Beautiful Baby

I have been missing for a few weeks now ……… and I thought I would share the reason why!
My first grandchild arrived safely ………. and instead of baby knitting, I have been baby cuddling. She is wonderful, and I am besotted !
She has - of course - been modelling some of my baby designs.

This sweet baby blanket is very easy to knit ! 

And it is a great choice for a gender-neutral baby set. (There is also a matching Roma Baby Cardigan Jacket and Hat).
