We feel that a Baby Blanket needs to be your little one’s best friend. It needs to be snuggly & cuddly. My son Daniel was given such a blankie when he was born, soft, luscious and always there to wrap him in love and warmth. He always wanted to know where ‘she’ was and to this day (17 years later) she can still be found hanging out in his room. (Daniel gave me permission to make this public knowledge :^). Blankie doesn’t look quite this good anymore but even though she’s been washed and thrown in the dryer about 10 million times she’s hangin’ in there.
We thought it only fitting to put blankie into a pattern for other schnookums in our lives.

This cotton is perfect for babies, soft enough for the most sensitive skin. I have gifted three of these and all were received with raves! It is fun pattern to weave, I was done in no time. Next time I will warp up for three at a time.

I had so much fun weaving this blanket for my first granddaughter Lena. The cotton was easy to work with and the finished blanket is so lovely and soft. I would happily weave this again one day!

I love this blanket. I loved weaving it, I loved giving it as a gift, and the new parents sure loved receiving it. I am now weaving two more for for gifts. This was so easy to weave and so soft it was hard not to just bury my face in the warp – well, maybe not quite. I am mulling over other projects (for me!!) using Monte Cristo.
