I love knitting but find little time these days. My mother knitts even more and loves knitting for my nephew and all the small children in the extended family. Oddly enough I don't like knitting jumpers for children and I think that is because it seems such a waste given that they grow out of in six months time.
But baby blankets is something totally different. I love making these knowing that they will be treasured and used a long time. I didn't use much of a pattern but it is knit very much like the wonderful baby blankets that pop up on the Purl Bee every so often.
Like the first one I knitted, this one also uses Madelinetosh yarn which is hand dyed and divinely soft. I bought this combo at the delightful Loop Yarn in North London.
