Gifties: Fam Knittery

24 Dec

My first knitting project was a hooded baby blankie for my niece, Lulu. And I finally have a pic!

This is Lulu! Shes 5 months old now, and shes an absolutely adorable little firecracker! Shes starting to get teeth and trying to crawl already!

Here’s the pattern I followed: http://thriftyknitter.com/?p=293, except I decided to crochet the border because it’s faster. :D And also, because this was my first knitting project ever, I did a garter stitch (knit every row) for the whole blankie. This is meant to be a light blankie for during the summer, so that pattern calls for Cotton-Ease for breathability. I used Lake and Taupe. And this was my first introduction to my now-cherished number 7 us – 32 in. circular needle!

Lulu’s mom, my sis Liz, also crochets!

Lizzie showing off the really cool baby blankie that shes making for her friend! I think this is called a puff stitch.

Someday I hope my crocheting can look as lovely as Lizzie’s projects!!
