Heh....Most of my friends know I'm expecting our first in Dec so the requests have gone down, but does anyone else here who knits/crochet get asked to make baby blankets for friends who are expecting.

Not that I mind...I love doing it....but isn't it funny how friends always seem to ask the knitter/crocheter if they can make their baby a blanket?

Just wondering if I was the only one or not.

Every mom wants (and deserves!) a handmade blanket for their new baby :) LOL!

I don't knit or anything, but I'm the friend who makes bows. EVERYONE comes to me to match outfits!

Nope, that's my sister. She's the one who makes baby blankets, and crochets, and makes cards, and little signs, and baby bows and everything else artsy under the sun.

I'm the friend who spends way too much money on her friends and their babies in hopes that they don't feel bad she didn't put as much thought or effort into their gifts.

Though, now that more of my friends are having babies, I may have to learn.

That's me. My friend Tara actually gave me a hard time when I decided that one blanket was enough even though she had twins. But I had a lot of other blankets to make at the time! LOL! (Eventually I did make her a second blanket, but it was after Abby and Devon were born. The first was green because I knew she had a boy and a girl, but pink is Tara's favorite color so I made a pink one special for Abby.)

I'm known as "the friend who makes pointe shoe bags for everyone's birthdays." And I mean EVERYONE! They expect it now...it all went downhill last March because there were 8 birthday's in 5 days. It was CRAZY crochet fest for a few days!

I'm known as the one who always makes Pyjamas or Photo Blankets.

I like it though, sewing is so much fun and quite relaxing for me...
