I know nothing about babies, I don't really know anyone, family or friend, that's had a baby in recent memory. Except for my supervisor at work, whose baby girl is due any day now. And I feel like I don't know the right things to say, the right questions to ask her in regards to the baby, etc... I feel so naive! I guess I'm still just a bit young to be in the baby crowd (not that I really have a problem with that!). But there are always so many adorable baby crafts and, finally, I had the opportunity to make one!
I made the popular Tiramisu baby blanket by Alicia Paulson. I used nearly an entire skein of off-white colored Caron One Pound yarn (machine washable and dryable, of course!), with light pink satin ribbon wove through the edging. I really like the idea of creating an elegant, yet girly, blanket for a winter baby.
I really enjoyed making this blanket and the mom-to-be really seemed to appreciate the handmade gift. Be sure to check out the free pattern at Alicia Paulson's website.
