Sailor themed Baby Blanket

väike Taaniel
So it finally happened and we were home from our travels for a total of three months.

No need to mention, that I started digging through my yarn stash almost immediately. I forced myself to unpack first:D I spent hours organizing everything and mostly knitting. Like 12-hours-a-day-knitting:D I just took some days off to satisfy my hunger for crafts.

On the request of the customer, I was using cotton, a material that I wasn’t very familiar with (I have mostly used merino wool) and I was so unsure if I could make the dress that exactly matches my customer’s vision. To top it all – the dress was for a bit older child and so far I had only made dresses for newborns.
