30 Years of Baby Blankets

These are three of my creations. I've been making these large Granny Square baby blankets for relatives for about 29 years.

This blanket I made 22 years ago for my baby Amanda. We didn't know what she was going to be so I just chose some random colors that I thought would go in the nursery. I got lucky with the lavendar color (I just had a feeling, but I couldn't bring myself to do pink, just incase I was wrong).

This one I made 12 years ago for my baby Hannah. I started making the blanket with a varigated yarn, then once I found out that she was going to be a girl, I trimmed it in pink.

This blanket I made 2 years ago for my grandson Liam. By the time his parents told us he was coming, they already knew that it was a boy.
