My next knitting project- a baby blanket and a small purse

by Karen Mahoney of City by the Sea Ceramics

I had a new little niece that was on the way and I decided I was going to make her a baby blanket. I thought her older sister may get jealous of the gift arriving and not being for her so I wanted to knit a small purse for her as well, since she loves bags and purses.

Here is the 27"x27" blanket I knit for the new baby, and a small purse I knit for her big sister.

I did a seed stitch on both, which was a new stitch for me. I decided to do the purse first, figuring the pattern in the yarn would hide any mistakes better while I was still getting a feel for the stitch.

A broken arm kept me from finishing it before my new niece was born, but I'm excited for her to finally receive it!
