John works with a couple that he wanted me to meet, and finally it worked out for us to have them over for supper. I enjoyed meeting them and started having lunch with the wife occasionally (I've mentioned lunch with a new friend on here a couple of times). They didn't have children, but it sounded like they wanted one fairly soon, so I wasn't surprised when John told me that she was pregnant. I made this blanket from Our Best Knit Baby Afghans and gave it to her Wednesday when I had lunch with her...before she moves away. :( Her husband took a new job, and they're moving. :(
I actually made this blanket before the other one, but I ran out of the pink yarn for the border. And I really wanted to get the first blanket made before my friend moved away, so I put this one on hold. Then I finally got the pink yarn I needed and finished the blanket. You might recall that I made a similar blanket earlier in the year, but in boy colors. This pattern is from Knit Baby Blankets.
This silly girl "photo-bombed" the picture I was trying to take of the striped blanket! She's a cutie, too, isn't she?
