The other blanket...

A bucket of colorful yarn to make another blanket for grandbaby number two; sex yet unknown.

Wonderful beachy colors just right for a little one who will reside in Miami, Fl. The yarn is a fingering weight extra fine merino; soooo yummy soft!

The pattern i used is called, Miami Beach Blanket. Maaike of Crejjtion fame designed the blanket and i purchased it from her etsy shop!
The blankie whipped up in no time, partly because the directions and color charts were so easy to follow and because i was a bit obsessive while working on it.  :)

I can't wait to hold little Florida baby wrapped up in this sweet blankie... I think it will do for a boy or a girl!

How bout you?

Baby blanket  is finally finished!!!  I added fuchsia around each square and scallops around the blanket !
this blankie is for grandbaby number two, sex unkown by the way,  i know... i know... i just had to take a chance this baby will be a girl!
I love the way this blanket turned out.  A nod to retro bohimian chic, just my daughter's style!
And, if by chance the baby turns out to be a boy I have started on another sweet blankie, lol, i just can't help myself.  :)
What's your latest crafting or making adventure?
