You know, it seems to me that sometimes specific genders tend to run in families. In my family, it’s boys. In fact, out of my six siblings, I only have one sister. And out of all our children, there are 13 in total, only two are girls. So, when my sister announced that she would be having her third child, I was not surprised to learn that it would be a boy.
And this time, I was determined to send him a special handmade gift on time. I was late with the last one. I’m notorious for being tardy. But not this time, no, this time his gift would arrive early. It would be ready and waiting for his arrival. Ready to wrap him in comfort and love from his auntie Rae. My intentions were good, but little Walyon had no patience. He couldn’t wait to discover all that this beautiful world had to offer. He made his grand entrance over a month early!
Unfortunately, his lovely seed stitch blanket was only half done. I finished it as quickly as I could, intending to send it off ASAP, but here it is… on my dresser… unshipped. And he is now a month old. Shame. On. Me.
The issue is that I needed to hold onto the baby afghan so that I could write this post. I had to take pictures of it, do a video of it, and write down the pattern. I have a terrible habit of writing the pattern after the project is finished–this is a no, no folks. Don’t follow my lead on this one! So, you see, my nephew’s warm and cozy zero year birthday present is late because I just had to share with you. It’s really all your fault folks. 😉
All blaming aside, if you’re looking for a fabulous and super easy gift for that little newbie in your life, this gorgeous crochet seed stitch blanket is perfect! And I am going to tell you exactly how to make it.
