Granny squares - aptly named

I have been furiously making these granny squares for the last week for a pram blanket for a special baby due on the 19th October. I finished the squares and was about to put it all together when the baby beat me to it and arrived a week early! I'm pleased and proud to announce

Our fifth grand child was born yesterday
and we are over the moon with the newest addition to our family. An adorable little girl W who weighed in at 6lbs 2ozs - a third child for my son and daughter-in-law and little sister to A and S..

Hopefully, photo of the finished blanket and maybe a picture of W to follow.

Have a good weekend
