Charming Pink Baby Blanket

May 7, 2011

Yesterday, I completed a baby blanket for a friend who is having a baby girl in July.  It’s her first child, and she is really excited and nervous all at the same time.  I was so happy to make this for her and her precious new bundle of joy, whom she is going to name Emma.  I love the name Emma.  I wanted to name my first daughter that for a while.

Here’s a close up of the pretty shell pattern.

There is a pretty, solid border around the shell pattern, followed by an open stitched border to give the edges a pretty ruffled look.

I just love making blankets for baby girls.  So much pink! 🙂  I have a feeling that when I have a daughter of my own (hopefully) one day, there is going to be a lot of pink in our house.

      Thanks, Mom. And you’re welcome! I wanted to make sure you felt special on Mother’s Day even though I couldn’t be there with you in person. Love and miss you too!

    What a sweet and meaningful gift! You did a great job! I’m curious, how long did it take?

      Thank you! If I would have worked on the blanket every day for a couple hours it probably would have only taken about a week or less, but I stretched it over about 3 weeks. I would work on it for a few hours, and then I wouldn’t touch it for several days, and then I would work on it again, etc. I’m very good at procrastinating. 🙂

        That’s not too bad at all. It sure looks complicated but glad it didn’t take you that long.

      Sure, it’s “Charming” by Terry Kimbrough. Pattern is from the book “Best of Terry Kimbrough Baby Afghans.”
