I have finished a pink baby blanket for Nathaniel's, my nephew, baby daughter who is scheduled to arrive in February. My sister and Nathaniel's mother-in-law are giving a shower for Kristin next weekend! I started this blanket after Christmas and just finished it this week. It was a pretty simple pattern but since I haven't been knitting in a while it took me longer than most, I am sure! Glad I started it when I did because it was nice having a blanket over my lap while I knitted since it has been so cold here in the northeast. Yesterday morning my car registered -8 and by the time I headed home it had warmed up to 14!!! It has been a while it has been that cold here in Maine. We are used to snow but not these cold temperatures!! Today it was up 28 degrees--much better!!
Here is the baby card to go with the blanket. This is a cute little punch art baby that I saw on pinterest. I used circle punches for the head, body and diaper and the arms are legs are the tab punch (shortened a little). Small circle punches for the curl and eyes as well as the pacifier.
The inside of the card reads "A new little someone to kiss and to love a happy addition from heaven above". Thought this was an adorable poem for a new little baby. She will definitely be loved!!
