The baby in question, MaryAnn’s Henry, is now two months old. This is the same pattern I used for the other three baby blankets I made. One for Ariel’s Charlie and Matt’s niece Mya. I’ve also made it for a friend whose child is now in elementary school. That was the pre-digital-camera era though, so I don’t have a picture of that one.
I’m such a slow knitter I usually start these before the couple knows the sex of the child, so green is the default color. I would be fine with giving more girly colors to boys and vice versa, but not everyone feels that way and so gender-neutral green it is.
I’ve also got a PDF of the pattern I can send you if you are interested. Just let me know. It’s very easy, 3 knits 3 pearls in a repeating pattern of 14 rows.
Starting with this blanket, I kept track of what I was watching while knitting. Here’s the list:
- Persuasion (BBC)
- Midsummer Night’s Dream (Portland Actor’s Ensemble)
- Revenge of the Nerds
- In a World
- Repo Man
- Ruby Sparks
- Mad Men Season 7 part I
- Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains
- Sherlock Season 1
- House of Cards Season 1 (episodes 1-3)
- Stuck in Love
- Treme Season 1 (episodes 1-3)
- Downton Abbey, Season 5 (episodes 1-3)
