A Baby Blanket for Daniel

I’m not sure that I was really fully aware of how much I was capable of loving this little creature. I waited three months to meet him, three months in which I talked to my sister nearly every day, getting updates on his  little life, seeing photos, even watching his little feet wiggle in our few Google Hangouts. From the first moment I saw his face, I fell in love. Daniel is the most handsome baby I have ever seen.

(Maybe I’m a little biased. Maybe.)

As you know if you’ve been following this particular story line of mine, I’ve been making a baby blanket. If you follow me on Instagram (thisdustyhouse) or Twitter (@thisdustyhouse), you’ll know that, as I settled onto the plane, I pulled out the colourful squares and my wool needle and set to work. Three and a half hours later, as we disembarked, it was not yet finished. Each night, as we watched trashy TV in our hotel room, I worked those ends in, one after another.

Finally, Saturday morning, I finished.

I’m pleased with it. It’s bright and colourful, gender neutral without being overbearingly so. I hope this will be the blanket that Daniel carries with him everywhere he goes, getting it dirty, sticking his fingers through the holes as he goes to sleep at night.

 I hope he loves it.

  1. Such a beautiful blanket! I'm certain he will love it. And o my goodness look at his little chubby baby legs! Nothing cuter than that. My brother's name is Daniel, a great choice!

  2. Aw, thank you Elisa! Honestly, I would love to make a sell these blankets but do you know how long they take to make! I'm not a fast crocheter and even slower at working the ends in. If I were to pay myself properly, I'd price myself out of any sales!

  3. My mom had a quilt like that! For a very large chunk of my childhood, it sat, unfinished in a black garbage bag beside the piano. She finally pulled it out and finished it, 10 years after she started it. There is hope for your started blanket yet!

  4. What a beautiful blanket, Jeanette! I love the colors you chose for it. No doubt it will keep one cute little bug all snug. 😉

    Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday. Hope you'll join the fun each week. Be sure to
