We are ever so delightfully otherwise engaged around these parts with the new grandchild
Could I please direct your attention to the beautiful blanket beneath the stunning babe.
This was made by my sister-in-law following the squares from my "Knit With Me" series.
This was a serious of posts that I did featuring various knitting stitch panels.
She has applied herself with far more discipline than I have and completed several of these sampler blankets for close friends and family members in various colourways.
Her nephew is a very lucky boy and I treasure that this will be something that he can keep with him all through his growing years.
I imagine him at 5 yrs cuddled up with it in front of the TV
I imagine him at 14yrs with it across his lap as he finishes a school assignment
I imagine him at 17yrs at the rowing or the football
I imagine him at 20 yrs with it on the back seat of his first car
I imagine him at 30yrs with it wrapped around his own child......
