New Granddaughter

Here is my week old granddaughter "Charlie" on the organic cotton blanket I knitted.
It is Blue Skye organic cotton...ten skeins...machine washed and dried. (it shrank six inches) about 36 inches square...perfect...

Charlie is adorable! I hope she lives near you so you can spoil her regularly. I am sure that she will treasure this blanket for her entire life, unless she carries it everywhere and wears it out!

Congratulations Bill on the new addition to your family, she is a little cutie and the blanket looks great as well.

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.

Thank you all for your kind comments....we are all delighted to have a baby girl in the family. grandson just turned three...and he has no idea what "cousin" means....LOL

Charlie is beautiful, as is her blanket. When she gets a little older you might want to read her the picture book "Something from nothing" about a boy who gets a blanket from his grandpa.

Thank you for the lovely idea! I don't know the book...but I just ordered it...and will read it to my grandson...and hopefully to my granddaughter, someday...

A beautiful blanket, an even more beautiful baby and lucky girl to have a 'knitting grandpa'.

Congratulations! What an absolutely beautiful picture! (However, maybe you should post a separate picture of the blanket, so I can see and admire it properly - now I can't keep my eyes from that adorable baby.)

She is a beautiful gift and the blanket is a loving treasure for you both. You can look back and remember the love in creating it and she can look back and know how much love was put into it just for her. Congratulations to all and welcome to this wonderful life Charlie.

Charlie is going to provide you with years of knitting pleasure. There is nothing more fun then knitting for a little girl - I perosnally love making hats for them. The blanket looks lush. I just started a project with Blue Sky cotton and I really like working with it.
