Nephew #3 is on the way and of course some knitted baby gifts are a must!  My sister lives in Florida so I couldn’t quite convince myself to try for the  Reversible Celtic Baby Blanket.  I found this pattern at a local yarn shop while down in Florida and figured it was the perfect compromise.  It’s not a blanket but still something to snuggle against and who can resist a monkey head?

I did run into a couple of issues. I ran out of brown yarn and couldn’t find an exact match which I’m sad about.  Plus my face making skills are seriously lacking.  I figure it’s endearing and the baby won’t judge too much if the eyes don’t match.  It adds character right?  I just need to make sure it will survive the washing machine.  Otherwise baby toy will become cat toy!
