Secret Crafting Blogged

Way back in January I started a new project. It took me awhile but I finally finished it. It took me another week to actually put it in a box and mail it. I got word today that the present had arrived, so I'm finally blogging the finished product.

My friend Susan is super-pregnant with her 5th child. More power to her. She's due the 22nd, c-section scheduled the 15th. She's praying she doesn't make it that long.

I thought of knitting her a baby blanket but I waited way too long to start. The new baby would have been 5 before I finished it. In January I read this post on her blog. Thank the heavens she didn't have a new baby with her that day.  If she had, she would have needed one of these. I had to make her one.

Here is the result.


It is made from fabric from City Craft and scraps from my mother's stash. The backing is a remnant of green fleece. Even if it isn't used as stroller blanket, it is a great size for the baby's tummy time.

Now we just have to sit back and wait for Baby#5 to arrive. Come on baby boy, it's time.

ETA: Baby Andrew is here. I guess it just took a blanket arriving to entice him out.
