Baby Blankets

These are some pictures of the blankets I made for Declan (right) and Seamus (below). The pink blanket I did on a whim to change colors for fun of it. (Kaitie has dibs on that one:)

I'm looking forward to getting started on a blanket for the new baby as soon as we confirm if the baby is pink or blue:)

I feel kind of challenged as I never used an actual pattern, I made them up as I went along. I may do a pattern this time. (I just hate following directions, as I tend to lose my place, and I hate going back and counting everything). Anyhow I'm truly a novice, and knit and crochet simply for fun, and love. I think these sweeties are inspiration enough and I think they actually make my work look good. Thanks boys!

Seamus about 6 months old,
I think he's warming up to it.

As you can see it is still his favorite :)

Those blankets are gorgeous! I love to knit and crochet. It is just extra special to do it for babies.

They turned out great! You are going to inspire my daughter too much I think! I have been encouraging her to find a pattern a stick to it and she always ends up designing her own! :) I guess I should just let her go! I showed her this post :) I like the blue and yellow, so pretty.
