Baby Blanket


I love making Granny Squares but having already made two I couldn't just make another I could visualise a house stacked up with Granny Blankets. Then hubby said why don't you make one for his friend new baby.
Not knowing what sex I used the lilac and green and found a pattern on the internet.
Because you make what the pattern said I discovered my tension is smaller than it should be and overall it almost a square too small all around.
To get over this I made the border bigger and incoporated stripes and follwed the holes in the corners to match the square. All in all pleased how it turned out, now I'm doing another shawl.

  40. Interesting blog post. Some tips i would like to bring up is that computer system memory ought to be purchased but if your computer is unable to cope with whatever you do by using it. One can mount two RAM memory boards containing 1GB each, in particular, but not one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should check the maker's documentation for the PC to ensure what type of storage is required.
