Remember how Chibi’s baby is due fifteen minutes after mine? Well, Nephew4 needs a Welcome to Earth Blanket just as badly as his cousins (and friends) do, but little old me has been getting rather bored with traditional baby colored things.
Light pink? SNORE.
Pale, pale blue? ICK.
Creamy, barely there yellow? MEH.
Solution? A big, bold Welcome to Earth Blanket in three awesome primary colors:
You may also notice that I went for the uber-traditional granny square (or in this case, granny rectangle) pattern to offset my non-trad color choices (plus, there’s only so much crazy stitching a gal can do). Think it’ll work? Think Chibi’s baby will want to snuggle in this blankie?
Since Chibi & I’s joint baby shower is eco-friendly (ie: no tree-killing wrapping paper), some yarny ribbon is the best it’s going to get.
And, since said baby shower isn’t until the end of the month (the *very* last weekend I’m allowed to travel – no sense staying home until I have to), Chibi’s going to have to wait until then to see her gift in person.
Welcome to Earth, Nephew4!
