Happy news: I'm an aunt!

On the 21st October my brother and his girlfriend had their first baby! A sweet little girl. It's all so exciting! And I'm finally a proper aunt. My hubby's nieces and nephew are all grown up, so it is really fun to have a baby in the family again.
I have knittet a blanket for my little niece. The pattern is from Garnstudio, and you can find it HERE. I have used 100% meriono wool for this blanket, and it took almost 5 balls of yarn to fininsh it. It was really fun to knit with all the different patterns.
Of course I had to make a card too.... I know my brother and girlfriend doesn't really care for pink, but there is no way one can make a "welcome baby girl" card without any pink on it, is there?? (please agree with me on this one... lol...)
I didn't want to hide the blanket in the wrapping, so I just wrappet a piece of craft paper around and tied it with some shiny ribbon....
I really hope they can use the blanket, and I wish them all the best with the new little one! What an exciting time they are going through....

Sorry for the lack of blog posts lately. After I started working every day, I just don't have the energy.... and I don't want to spend my short evenings on the computer. I even forget to check my e-mails every day too....

Soooo talented Tonje. A lovely present - I'm sure they'll use it.

BTW do you have a link for the ballband dishcloth pattern? My friend has been inspired by the cloth you gave me last year.

This is such a beautiful blanket Tonje, much too pretty to wrap...I love the way you presented it! And I agree, a baby girl's card has to have some pink! :)

Virkelig fint det teppet. Jeg har sett det i bruk og det passet perfekt.
