Friends of ours who had moved back to Australia had a little darling girl in March. And since I knew that they were expecting back in September I started knitting a baby blanket for them.
Because they live in Australia I decided on cotton and I chose DROPS Muskat, which has a lovely shine to it. They didn’t know that they were having a girl, so I decided on a bright and colourful blanket. I had even more colours to pick from, but I’m actually really pleased with the end result, the colours just work really well together. As you can see I stuck to a straightforward garter stitch, which made this blanket a relatively easy and quick knit, although I did take my time as I had some Christmas knitting to do in between starting and finishing it. And of course I added my lovely logo that I ordered from a lady in France. Here’s the finished blanket that I sent on its way once I heard that my friends daughter had been born. However, not having heard anything I recently checked with my friend and it turns out that they had moved and even though they had a redirection from their previous address any parcels they were expecting didn’t make it to their new place.
So, it looks like this rather lovely blanket has been lost :-(.
