Dec 18th 2010 12:06AM Although neither of my grandmothers were into knitting or crocheting, it is actually me that has started a tradition of making blankets for each of my nieces & nephews as they are born and now have started them for great-niece & great nephews. The first three were of a different color in the same pattern, but now I have since learned to cro-knit and my newest challenge is learning to knit (my first knitting project was a baby blanket which turned out perfectly.) My hope is that one day that each one will be treasured and eventually be passed down to their loved ones. I also made a tradition of buying them their first Christmas stocking and an ornament for each year. What makes it so special is that when my great-niece was born two years ago and Christmas came, my nephew (her father) automatically knew that I wouldn't forget either one.
