But no knitting to show you today.

Little Lovey Blanket for new niece

I have a new niece (as of almost a month ago, geez, where does the time go?  And technically, she’s my first niece as they already have 2 boys.) As I haven’t tested her parents for knitworthiness, she shall get a little blankie and possibly some knit booties.

Soft, fuzzy polyester backing.  (Blur on left caused by curious kitty.)

The blankie is more of a lovie size – not so much for warmth as for cuddles.  It’ll make a good doll blanket one day, though.

I constructed it pretty much the same way as I did that taggie blanket long long ago, but only added one ribbon loop. I don’t really know why, but I like it that way.

Expect a new pair of socks within the week.  I have beat the Dogwood curse!
