If you happen to ask my siblings what it is like to be an Auntie or an Uncle, they will tell you it's the best job around. While I would have to say that being a Mama is the best job going, being an Auntie is pretty stellar. My youngest brother and his wife gave me that role in April, and what a joy Fi-Chan is.
As Fi's arrival approached, my knitting needles started clicking a lace blanket tune.
Knit with Louisa Harding Azalea and Rowan Summerlite DK, this cotton blanket is a soft, cuddly knit. Knit vertically, Fiona starts with a garter stitch edging, then has three separate lace sections, before finishing with another garter edge. After the main body of the blanket is finished, stitches are picked up and knit along both sides to finish the blanket’s edging.
You can buy the pattern here.
