I have kept busy the past few months knitting various items for soon to born grandson Charlie. During the winter I knitted a blanket for Charlie, it is approximately 36" x 36", it took some time to complete but was well worth the effort, and I will definitely make knit another for our fourth grand baby who is due November 1. To match the blanket I knitted a bonnet, cardigan and booties. I found the bootie pattern online for free, the size is perfect for a newborn and there is enough stretch that I think they will stay on wriggly little feet. Amber then searched online for a hat pattern for a newborn, she chose a variegated yarn color called Crayon, and I knitted the cutest little stocking cap!
I put together a quilt about a month ago and worked hard for four evenings in a row to get it quilted, it is all finished and I am pleased with it. I used the same material that I used for the quilts I made for grandsons Henry and Patrick. Each boy's quilt is made with same material but pieced differently to make make it uniquely their own.
I will have a little break from making baby stuff, but on May 29 Traci, our son Matt's wife, will have an ultrasound and we should then know if grand baby number four is a boy or a girl.
