Élizabeth, my baby girl, came to the world on December 18, after an endless delivery (40 hours of active labor!) but overall uneventful. She was weighing 6 lbs 1 oz, measuring 19″ and she was and still is in perfect health. Since then, she is at the heart of my little happy and loving universe. I do miss my knitting community a lot, and I also miss designing and even knitting. Time is flying so fast and my days are busy like they have never been before, my nights are sleepless, my house is messy but my heart is filled with so much love! I knew what was coming, but I never could really imagine how much of a loving mama bear I would become. Nothing matters to me anymore, except for those big blue eyes that are looking at me like I am her whole world, and so she is mine.
Today, I’m releasing a pattern that I call Betty’s Blanket. It’s a very sentimental pattern for me as I knit this blanket while pregnant with my little love. I finished knitting it just a few days before she was born and she’s now spending her first winter wrapped up in it.
The pattern is meant to be warm, cuddly and colorful. My sample required 5 colors of DK weight yarn but it can easily be modified to use more or less colors. For example, you could use one main color and a different color for each row of bubbles, making a great use for all those leftover yarns from other projects.
