I ´went to visit the expecting couple again, and sneaked upstairs to their nursery room to get a few pics of the blanket in its natural habitat. The photo shows only a bit, but apparently I really hit a colour jackpot! Somehow, without having any idea what their nursery would look like, I had picked the colours that really fit! The only way the blanket had been more harmonious with the room, would have been if I had stitched some monkeys on top of it. Yes, they have little monkeys on the walls of their nursery room! 🙂
By the way, I also listed the blanket on Ravelry. I am still very new to this, so I am not really sure how it works, but I’ll figure it our along the way.
Another item done! Let’s be honest, I cheated a bit. I found them in my yarn stash, all knitted and stitched together. All that was left to do was to wash them, weave in the ends and add the tulip buttons. And voila! I had a little addition to the gift of the baby blanket.
Both the blanket and the booties went to their new home yesterday, and as expected the parents-to-be were impressed. Partially it is because they really appreciate handmade things, and I am very grateful for that. But partially it is also because whenever you make something tiny, it is bound to leave an emotion.
I did forget to take photos of the blanket, so I need to pay them another visit and check out how it fits into their nursery.
