Baby Pink

A friend of ours just had a new baby girl (they already had 2 - and they didn't even pick out a girl's name for the new baby - so sad). To welcome the new little one - I had knit my customary white baby blanket - but I waited to do the border until I knew the gender...

...it's just 100 stitches of stockinette stitch until you get to receiving blanket length on size 9's...

...the border is 1 round of single crochet followed by 1 round of shell stitch...

...then I made a pretty pink card - I just sketched a bassinette and penciled in some accent lines - hot glued on a ribbon and a little banner...

...and found a pink gift bag at Stuff-Mart...
