My Baby is Loved

Well it has been a while since I've posted so tonight is just full of pictures and updates on knitted things. This one is of some very lovingly made items I've received for our new baby girl, Baby B. The Pink Flower Power/Fuschia blanket was sewn by a great girl, Sarah, whom I've known for about 2 years now. She does not seem to have a blog yet, but trust me, she's awesome. We met at an SnB group before I moved out of that heat and I've always had fun with her and think she is a great woman. (Sarah, if you're reading this, don't worry, I'm still my sarcastic goofy self, just being sentimental for this post only).

Next up we have two baby hats made by one of my very best friends, Heather. I think she got the bunny hat pattern out of the IttyBitty Hats book and made up the other one. They are both so very soft and are going to fit perfectly when late fall/winter hits here. I already put them on Baby B after baths to keep her head dry and warm. Heather is another person who I love and if you ever get a chance to meet her, take it, she's awesome!

Next up is a full size blanket that was gifted to me by the great ladies who help make up the weekly knitting group at the Bee. Each of the 12 ladies made up a square of their choice using Blue Sky Cotton and put it together to make an absolutely beautiful and soft blanket. I almost want to save it but know that I and Baby B are going to do much snuggling in it. Soon I will have a little card documenting who made each square to put in the baby book. Christina used her extra yarn to make the little bunny pictured. It's a great size for B. to snuggle with when she is resting. All these women are great, inspiring knitters for different reasons and I am so honored that they'd make this gift for us. Oh and they all helped on the always (for me anyway) dreaded seeming and edging!

I don't know if you remember me or not, but I went to knit night a few times when you were still pregnant. We moved back to Albuquerque last month and Jamie told me about Ravelry. I added you to my bloglines. That is a great pic of the blanket. They did a great job!
