God's Gift

There is nothing more anticipated than a new baby. There is nothing more precious! My neighbors Tanya and Justin are expecting their second little girl in a few weeks. The entire neighborhood came together for a baby shower for Tanya. This blanket was so much fun to knit. It is done in organic cotton by Blue Sky Alpaca in four different colors. The darker bands of color are variegated wool. The pattern comes from one of the clients at my favorite store, The Shabby Sheep, in Dallas. This was easy and fun to make - it is amazing how the points on the chevron appear through the knitting process and reminds me of Psalm 139: 13-14:

You created every part of me, knitting me in my mother's womb.
For such handiwork, I praise you.
Awesome this great wonder.

Just found your blog & must tell you how much Morgan loves her blankie!

A few years back, knitting became a simple craft that became a passion. From scarves to much more complicated patterns, knitting is a way to decompress after a day at work, a way to express my creative side, and a way to give part of myself through knitted gifts. I hope you enjoy this blog!
