Another baby blanket to work on



Hope everyone enjoyed all the nice weather, if it is nice where you are, and time with family.

As I mentioned on my blog a few weeks ago we just found out we are going to be great grandparents to not one baby but another granddaughter is expecting.

I have completed the Christening Blanket for the baby boy due in January.
Hard work with having to unwind the yarn and rewind into a ball.



 
HH and I do not want to have to do that again.
It took 8 skeins of this to do the blanket.
It is beautiful and we are not sorry we did it, but.

Since I have been crocheting for many years I decided to check all of my stash for a possible suitable supply of yarn for the second blanket.



Wa lah!!!!!!

found 4 1000 yard skeins of soft white thread.
My pattern is a shell pattern.

I have already bought the 1/4 inch blue and 1/4 pink satin ribbon to trim with.

I know what I will be doing for the next week or so.

Love being a grandmother.
Gonna love being a great grandmother just as much.

Go here to share some more Grannie things.

I laughed out loud when I saw this mixer! What a great idea!!! Your blankets will be lucky and YOU are so lucky to get to be a great grandma! Just have to ask - what does the HH stand for? We use HH and WW -- Hubby Huberson and Wifey Wiferson. We are silly!

Congrats on becoming great grandparents twice over! That mixer and tp roll is brilliant! I could have saved my money getting a yarn winder! The blanket is sweet!

Congratulations, Peggy! You are going to be busy with all that thread, but I can just imagine the happy thoughts that will be crocheted into the blanket for the newest member of your family.

They are lucky to have you as a great-grandmother. I'm sure they'll cherish this a lot one day. And congratulations Peggy, so happy for you. I bet you can't wait for January! :)
