Dusting off my needles

I finished crocheting the shell baby afghan and decided I needed to dust off my knitting needles before I forgot how to knit!

  • Pattern – Sunny Baby Blanket – free knit pattern found on Ravelry
  • Needle size – US 8
  • Yarn – Sprightly Cotton worsted from BluPrint, colorway Lilac

It’s been years since I knit this one for Rae … I finished it in September 2012, just a month before she was born. That little blanket showed up in a lot of photos!

And still looked great years later when she let Mo borrow it! It was knit with Caron Simply Soft and I’ve been impressed with how well that yarn has held up.


  1. Hi Mary! Aww, adorable photos and lovely blanket. It’s amazing how you can see the older Rae in her baby pictures. She’s a good big sissy, sharing with baby Mo. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Don’t you just love it when you see something you made with love in a picture? It always makes me smile to know what I’ve made is appreciated and used.

  3. Pretty color and nice pattern, and adorable grand babies! Wish I enjoyed knitting more but it’s a struggle for me.

  4. Well the blanket is certainly well loved. I’ve used that yarn in several gifted blankets so it’s good to know how well it wears and with no napping up either. Such great pictures.
