The baby blanket/shawl is under way...

As promised, here are some pics of the baby shawl I have started crocheting for Michelle's baby due in December. 

This is the blanket/shawl pattern I am following.  I have kept this pattern book for over 27 years now as I made a few different baby things from it for Michelle and her brothers when they were babies.  It makes me so happy that I am now making something for my first grandchild from this very same book.

Michelle chose baby yellow for the colour because, as yet, we don't know what sex the baby is.

~ Love, light and peace ~

    I know that the blanket/shawl will keep the baby warm and cozy because it is stitched with Lots of Love!

  5. How very precious with love in every stitch. I like the pattern of the blanket,and it doesn't look too difficult. How exciting it is to make plans for a new little one.

  6. Just been catching up with you and have been feasting my eye on all the lovely eye candies. Believe it or not I went and bought a book on crocheting today determined to learn a bit of crochet. I shall have to browse the net for some more explaining as the book is not that great in explaining.

  7. How fun to be using the same pattern for your new grand baby! I love baby yellow. It always reminds me of baby chicks or baby ducks and that translates to soft. Your work is so beautiful!

  8. Wow, it's beautiful, Serena. I bet yellow will age very well, too, and it might become a keepsake. How sweet is it that Michelle had things from this pattern book when she was an infant? Touching, really.

    I'm so happy for you to be a grandma!

  12. Just beautiful. I can tell you that the first grandchild will always be so special in your life --- not that the rest aren't, but there is something a little different because he/she teaches you how to be a grandma. My Hunt did that for me.

    You are so fortunate to have this blessing coming your way.

  14. So pretty! And it is just awesome that you are using the same book you used to make things for your kids. Just made me feel warm all over and gave me a grin! Can hardly wait to see it when it is finished. :)

  15. Beautifully done! Didn't know you crocheted (: This will be so special for your grandchild. I saved the sweater sets my mom made for my babies when they were born and they were handed down to the first born child of each of my son's.
