Decided a few years ago if a new baby comes to my stretch of the neighborhood I'm making them a baby blanket. They've all been neighbors up till now. The latest baby though is on my route to the gym. I walk so I get a good look. New couple moved in and I saw she was pregnant. I waited till I got to see an actual glimpse of the baby. Just in case. Then I began knitting the blanket. My daughter thought it was strange and that they'd think I was a stalker. Well, I didn't care. I wish all stalkers would show up with a handmade blanket and then leave them in peace.
I do see myself as a kindly old grandmotherly type. I may be over estimating my appearance even though my age definitely qualifies. I told my daughter I promised not to snap anyone like a twig with my muscularly toned thighs. I got the eyeball roll.

|Love the way this blanket turns out. I'll never get tired of it.|
|Used Sandee Cherry's roping technique for the edging. I like the neater look rather than the pie crust edging.|
