Baby, Blanket, Simplicity, Perfection

My new granddaughter, Francesca Rose, 4 days old, wrapped in the baby blanket I knit for her, my version of Purl Bee's Super Easy Baby Blanket, knit in Debbie Bliss' Baby Cashmerino (and yes, completely machine wash-and-dryable merino-cashmere blend with a bit of microfibre).
Really, sometimes the simplest styling is the best. And few words required.

  1. No words needed. She's wrapped in love, your sweet little Frankie.

    1. ;-) I loved the simplicity of the garter stitch, so different from the last blanket I knit!

  4. I envy you the grandbaby (yes, perfection), and I envy her the blanket (beautiful). Does my heart good to see it.

    1. Babies really do lift our hearts, don't they?!

    Fresh, sweet baby. Nothing like it in the whole wide world, especially when it's your baby's baby.

  8. I've tiptoed back to reading a few blogs and this is the most divine (in all senses) discovery. A beautiful newborn, wrapped in those tender colours with love. (What a charming version of the name ;)) Delighted for you, ma!

    1. I wondered if you'd peek in at our little one -- I know you love photos of the little ones. Thanks for the visit -- looking forward to more sustained back-and-forth blog visits in a few weeks.

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
