This week I finished up a quick handmade gift for my niece or nephew to be who is due in about 5 weeks. The mum to be decided not to find out the gender as this is going to be her last baby so she wanted it to be a surprise. So I decided to keep the blanket nice and simple and gender neutral.
Corey and I have sneaking suspicion that they are having a girl and they know and just aren't telling anybody but only time will tell. Either way this blanket will work. However, I do wish I knew what she was having so I could have put a brighter ribbon on the blanket.
I used this pattern which is available for free via Ravelry. If you are a knitter or crocheter and you aren't on Ravelry you need to join now. It is basically a massive online library of patterns. Making blankets for the new babies in Corey's family has become a bit of a tradition for me. Each time I have used a different pattern and I love all the different blankets that have resulted. Hopefully there will be a few more babies to come that I can make blankets for.
