Lexi's Opinion
2-1/2 year old Lexi (the one in my picture) has lost her favorite pink drag-around knit blanket. So, I started her a new one, in a more coral shade of pink and a heavier weight. When I showed it to her all she said was "I don't like it, Grandma". I was hoping for a little variety in my knitting life, but apparently, I need to make yet another pink blanket out of the Bernat Softee Baby pale pink yarn.

Save it for the next grandbaby. Then she'll want it.

They are so honest at that age! My daughter was about that age when I got my hair cut short. My hair dresser asked her how she liked it. She put her hands on her hips, cocked her head to the side and said "It'll grow back"

Knitting is saving my sanity

They do know what they want even at a young age.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

There are many occasions when I make something for dd (7) & she has not liked the color, or yarn or even the pattern I selected. But if I make something for my niece of another child, she insists that I make here one. If I don't want to work with it I tell her I have artist license. Then we decide on something else. Now I know how my mom felt when I was so sure of what I wanted. Now I always let her pick to yarn.

I have three passions:
1. My husband
2. My daughter
3. Knitting
Everything else can wait.

It's a compliment, Lori! She loves the blanket you made her so much and has formed strong emotional ties to it--the new one has to be EXACTLY the same.

I've had to make several duplicates for my grandchildren too. One was cut to shreds by older siblings experimenting with scissors. The little one was heartbroken and mailed the blanket to Grammy to fix...she still doesn't know I had to make a new one. I did machine sew the tattered one as best I could and hid it away because it was so special to her.

Some blankets become a child's closest friend and comfort, and it sounds like you made one of those this time. It doesn't happen with every blanket I make, but when it does...I love it!
