Next up was my friend Kristin's shower. At first she said there would be absolutely no pink in her baby's room, so I was going to try and match whatever colors she chose for her curtains, but then she changed her mind completely and decided it was pale pink all the way. This left me one month to knit the world's most everlasting blanket.
I don't know if it was because my needles were on the smaller side, if the yarn was super snaggy and hard to work with, or just that I made the blanket WAY too wide and had to keep lengthening it so it wouldn't look stupid, but this baby took me the entire four weeks. Kristin's son is Topher's best buddy, though, so I wanted her little girl to have something special. I wanted her to sleep in a cloud of softness. I almost threw a party the day I cast off and could say that I was done. All joking aside, though, it was a labor of love.
But because the best gifts come in groups, I threw in a matching hat (once again, the stuffed cat is the only thing in my house small enough to model my newborn hats.)
Last night was the last shower, and I wanted to try something new. So I made a hat and experimented with it a bit. Once I decided that I liked it, I made some booties to match.
