Look what they’ve done to my shawl, Ma or Nina as Baby Blankie


With the advent of a new great niece I decided it was time to knit something (as if I didn’t already have a gazillion projects a humming in the house…) Anyhoo, I thought I’d use the Nina Shawl pattern. I love all the M-D patterns, but this one is especially cute and quite adaptable to a baby blanket. I’m hemming the ends and will be sewing on a bit of cotton flannel to the back to cover the not-so-hot bits and knitting in cotton yarn (darling baby Kate lives in San Diego). My only hope is the thing doesn’t get too wild, but then what else are crazy great aunts for if not a little wildness, right?

The first picture is in an earlier stage of development and it appears to be suitably conservative, (right). Well, here we are now, adding BLUE to a baby girl blanket (hey, no sexists here!)

So far, it’s a bunch of fun:)
More to come as I progress with this thing,
Take care,

Wife of one, mother of six, gram of five (so far) and lawyer for many young persons, I love to sing, read, knit and walk. My politics are somewhat left of Marx and I want to hear what you think, too!
