Family Tradition

My neighbor (across the street) just had a baby. She's a tiny girl and I didn't even know she was pregnant until we got her picture Christmas card so I had to drop everything to make a baby blanket, some knitted hats and booties. The crochet blanket is a family pattern that I had to consult with my Aunt Blondie on how to get it started as there's no written pattern. Grandma M. was always making this shell blanket for every new baby that came along and I guess I'm carrying on the family tradition. This one from Baby Bee in Pink Baby Camo modeled by my childhood china doll (also made by Aunt Blondie).
