Not more booties!!

I'm afraid so. Another boys pair for another new boy. I really think I could knit booties in my sleep now!

Handknitted booties make such a lovely baby gift though, and are small enough to keep as a memento of those tiny toes!

I've been waiting for this flower to blossom for about three weeks and it has finally popped open. I must say it looks a lot prettier now than when it was just a big green stalk sticking out of a pot. And it happens to go with our living room colour scheme perfectly.

I shall enjoy its short life!

That blanket again...

I recently had a request to post instructions for the blanket I talked about making for Bea.
I can't take credit for the design as it is a pattern by Alicia Paulson that you can get here, but I changed the yarn for Rowan all seasons cotton and chose a different colour scheme.

Here is the young lady herself chewing on the velvet ribbon!
