For the last meeting before the summer break we set a challenge. This year it was to knit a
special blanket for a special baby. And those that wished could give them to SANDS which we have mentioned in earlier blogs.
This is a beautiful lace blanket. Knitted by hand in a fine, but unbranded, yarn.
This one is adapted from a stitch pattern from Womens Realm. It was part of a layette published at the time of the birth of Princess Anne's first baby. The edging is crab stitch, which the knitter learnt how to do at one of our Club meetings.
These four were all knitted by the same person. They are knitted to her own design and based on a patern from one of the baby books. They all have a garter stitch edging.
Another handknitted blanket, this time knitted from the SANDS own pattern. It is knitted in garter stitch and has a pretty lace edging.
