A few weeks ago my brother-in-law and sister-in-law had their first baby. Now, I am lucky enough to have two beautiful daughters and several good friends whose children call me “Auntie” but this time – this time – I really am an Aunt! So, on hearing the news that a baby girl was born, I immediately got out my knitting needles and got to work. My sister-in-law doesn’t like pink and while at first I thought that would be limiting; I’m pretty excited about the colors for my niece’s first Auntie-made blanket.
I choose the Tiled Blocks Blanket itself in large part because it is so cute and in small part because it looks like a blanket that will take the child from babyhood through toddler-hood and into little girlhood. I want this blanket to be a long term favorite.
So- what do you think? Is this a good first “hand made by Auntie” blanket? Will my sister-in-law approve of the colors?
