All in the family

Although I started a a little behind schedule, I managed to finish up the blanket I made for my nephew, Anthony Richard, less than three weeks after he was born. I say, not so bad.

This is Anthony:




He's just a peanut, but I already think he's really cool. Wise beyond his 19 days old. And I'm pretty sure we're going to have a lot of fun. Especially after he can walk and talk and eat candy I give him that he's not supposed to have.

He's the latest recipient of a custom made La Femme Monkita blanket. I've posted it in my Etsy shop too, at least for a couple of days.



Unfortunately, I thought his nursery was periwinkle, yellow and white. Turns out it's periwinkle, green and white and it's actually the sunroom/conservatory of the house that's got the yellow. Oh, well. I guess you can't win 'em all.






This is his older brother, Lucas Ambrose, who's smart enough to immediately make fun of how I'm holding the camera:



I learned how to knit when he was about 9 months old and I made him a big ol' blanket for his first birthday. As you can imagine, Anthony kind of made out with the better blanket. To him, I'd also have to say, "you can't win 'em all."

Next up is a custom made blanket for Baby Girl Brainerd, who's still cooking in mom Erin's belly for a couple of more weeks. I guess I better get cracking!

Kirsten, the blanket is beautiful and I'm sure it will blend well with all the colors in every room of the house - wherever Anthony goes!
