My friend and coworker GYI and her wife are expecting their first child. A little boy.
I'm a sucker for babies - especially first babies in a family - and she was gracious enough to agree that I should be allowed to make him a blanket.
After a fair amount of questioning (read: harassment), GYI confessed that her family has a particular appreciation of turtles. With that in mind, I set to work. I picked out a pattern, modified it just a bit, and came up with this blanket. It is done in ultra-washable acrylic. Babies are sweet, but they are also messy (or at least mine were), so machine-washable I thought was a must.
So there you have it: Baby turtles making their way from the sand to the surf.
I can't wait to meet the little guy.
