Baby Afghan Done






Finally finished the edging on the baby afghan for Melanie and Casi's baby. I can just imagine seeing this precious bundle to be, all wrapped up in it.
For now, I had to content myself with putting a doll with the blanket !
When we know what this little one will be, then I will make either a pink of blue sweater to go with the afghan. My mother always made this great little sweater called the "quickie baby sweater" made with worster weight yarn which makes it work up very fast. My mother had made several for my girls and I loved them. Its fun making the same things for my grandbaby that my own mother made for her grandchildren.

What a beautiful afghan! The edging with bands of colours gives it a really nice finishing touch.

I love the edges and the blanket is wonderful. I love the double wedding ring quilt it's sitting on too :-) My mum hates knitting so all my baby stuff was knitted by moi. I'm really looking forward to knitting for Rachael!
