For the past few weeks I have been working on a baby blanket and matching hat for my cousin Heather, who is due to give birth to her first child in a few weeks. Heather’s an avid reader of this blog, so I couldn’t post pictures until after her baby shower, which was killing me a bit because I am so, so happy with how this set came out. I used Mission Falls 1824 Wool in Basil, with Pistachio, Amethyst and Damson for the stripes. The hat is made from Pistachio with Amethyst and Damson stripes. Both pieces are machine washable (key for babies!) and super soft. (Mission Falls yarns are manufactured in Canada and are an Aran weight, Merino Superwash Wool.) The blankets measure 24″ x 24″ making them the ideal size for car seats or strollers, as the baby will stay warm and look adorable in their matching blanket and hat! I’m selling the sets for $100, in whatever color combination you choose. I can also do solid blankets, if stripes aren’t appealing. To place an order, leave a comment here or email me at email@example.com.
