Someone very important to me, but that is not me, is expecting! I don’t know what to knit first! Next week I will be going to my favorite yarn shop, the Blue Heron Knittery in Decorah, Iowa so I am on the hunt for some great baby patterns. Some of my favorites:
Baby Chalice Blanket, available as a free Ravelry download
A bright, punchy afghan made from crocheted hexagons… with a tutorial available here
Or maybe this Pine Forest Baby Blanket, also a free Ravelry download.
It is waaaay too early to plan on a girl or boy, but these afghans would suit either. By the time I find out the sex at 12 weeks I will still have enough time to whip up a super-cute collection of hats and socks.
I never thought I would be able to part with my knitted goods, but for this baby, I am ready!
