Baby Blankets and a promise

I love making baby blankets. I can’t think of a better gift for a new little one than a blanket. There are so many positives to them, they don’t grow out of them. I have made quite a few blankets over the years.

One of my favourites recently was for little Daisy.

The last one I finished was a little diagonal granny stripe.

With a very successful edging.

This blanket got me thinking, the intended recipient, is a colleague of my sister. The baby will need surgery immediately after being born, and they still don’t know the full extent of the problems till after birth, as doctors suspect some of things and surgeries may be needed.

All the blankets I have given so far have been enjoyed by friends and their children in happy lives and that is not always the case. Therefore I promise that for every baby blanket I make, I will craft another for SANDS.
