This week I started the blanket I'll be giving Nephew O for his first birthday. This is the same pattern I've for used both previous nephews on this branch of the family, just a new color. It's the "Tell Me a Story" Blanket from a Leisure Arts booklet called "Beautiful Baby." Previous blankets were green and cream and blue and cream. Now it's orange and cream. It took a bit of looking, but I think I've found an orange that doesn't make make me think of a creamsicle. If I make one section of this blanket every day until Nephew O's birthday, it should be on time.
The book is one I've been reading bit by bit over the last year. Your Baby's First Year Week by Week, by Glade B. Curtis, M.D., M.P.H. and Judith Schuler, M.S., was sent to me for free by my health care company after the first pregnancy-related claim was made. It's not my favorite baby info book, but it has contributed some good ideas and made itself useful. So hard to believe we're already in the last week!
So far so good, joining in on Ginny's Yarn Along!
