About a week ago I released my Leaf Baby Blanket. I haven’t written about it, because it was actually a gift for my cousin who was expecting a baby girl. Now that they have received the blanket I can post all about it here! This blanket pattern has been a couple years in the making. In addition to making it a couple times to make sure it worked well and was sized well, it also went through tech editing to make sure it was as good as it possibly could be. 😀 I love that this gift is covered in leaves that is great for a new little one. It can also be made in absolutely any color, and with all the leaves it work really well with a fall color scheme. For my cousins baby girl I decided on a grey/green hybrid yarn. I used Miss Babs Keira sport weight yarn, and is so light and airy. It is also a superwash yarn which makes it great for baby items. I like to make sure the new parents are able to easily wash the baby items, because let’s be honest….baby stuff happens. 😀 I also thought that would be perfect for a July baby. Baby girl is small enough right now that it can be doubled to make it thicker for those days inside with air conditioning. 😀 When it comes to making an heirloom blanket, you don’t always want a bulky type of blanket, but one that is light and flowing and perfect for any season. I hope you love this as much as I do!
