a baby + a blanket are born
Today, we celebrate the birth of a baby girl! My good friends Zan and Trevor had a cute little 8-pound, 6-ounce bundle at 1:20 a.m. I visited the new family this morning and took a few shots of beautiful baby Makenna.
Makenna also meant a new project for me: a crocheted granny square blanket. Hanni and I cranked out some squares (she did the brunt of that cranking) and then I sewed the whole shebang together. Success! Next up, I’d like to attempt the color block blanket detailed in The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller.
ps. Makenna is wearing a handmade beanie by the talented Tahoe crocheter Jenna Minnes, whose idea it was to make the aforementioned blanket but never got around to hooking a stitch.
