Little Boy Blanket

Hi there my lovelies, I hope you're all having a cool and crafty weekend :) As I'm sure most of you know by now, I'm due to have another wee baby in just a couple of weeks. Just before Christmas I had the massive task of deciding exactly which pattern to use and which colours to choose for making that all important baby blanket :)

Something I haven't reveled yet, is that we know the little one will be a Boy! Yes, we will soon be able to join the 'one of each' club, which I am very excited about!

After much pondering, I decided to go for the Sunshine Granny Baby Blanket pattern (which you can buy here and here). I love this pattern as it's so cheery and just a little bit different from the usual Granny Square.

For this wee mans blankie, I used Drops Merino Extra Fine yarn, which I just love. It's so soft, comes in a great array of colours, just perfect for a baby blanket. Here, I used - Mustard, Grey Blue, Red, Pistashio, Light Brown, Off white and for the main colour - Light Grey Mix.

Isn't it lovely? I simply can't wait to bring my baby boy home all wrapped up in this!

So...if you don't hear from me for a while, you know why. But I will certainly try to keep you updated as often as possible. I may post little updates on the Little Doolally Facebook page more often, here is the link in case you want to keep in touch.

Happy hooking all!

Ta-ta for now :)
