I have two co-workers I have promised baby blankets to. One is a brand new daddy with his first ever baby being born at the beginning of September. He’s been on paternity leave, and he’ll be back when I get back from vacation. I’m hoping the blanket is big enough since he hasn’t told anyone any details about the baby yet.
His blanket is made using Baby Bee Adore-A=Ball in Happy Face. I used 6 balls of yarn and a size M/N(9mm) hook.:
The paw belongs to my son’s orange and white tabby, Butterscotch.
My other co-worker is going to be a brand new granddad with his first grandchild expected in December. He doesn’t know the gender of the baby yet, so I went with white.
This baby blanket is also made with Baby Bee Adore-A-Ball but it’s called Angel:
I’m also using the M/N (9mm) hook for this one too.
I haven’t measured either one but when I do, I’ll update this post.
While I like how this “yarn” feels, I don’t really care for working with it. It’s like homespun only slicker. I won’t be using it for any future projects.
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!!

The blankets look so good! (Butterscotch made me chuckle.) It’s interesting how different they look with their contrast in colors.
They’re very soft and because they’re super bulky, I don’t think anyone will have to worry about little fingers getting caught. The colors are great! The white is really vibrant, and I just wish the yarn wasn’t so difficult to work with. I ended up working in front loops only in order to make sure I was actually working the next stitch in the row and not adding one in a stitch already worked – that didn’t make sense – it’s hard to explain without you seeing the way it was made.
