I was recently contacted by a gentleman for a custom order for a baby blanket. He explained that his wife has a blanket that her grandmother made and she has had it since she was a small child. It is in tatters and not able to be repaired. He wanted to know if I could try and recreate the blanket that Grandma made so his wife could actually have a blanket to curl up on the couch with. He wanted to give it to her as a birthday present.
I was so touched by this idea. He brought me the original blanket so I could see the stitches and the yarn. It looked like a simple Ripple Stitch. We decided on the size and the yarn colors. Once I had his approval, my hook started flying. I used my Clover H-5.0 hook. The yarn I chose was Loops & Threads Snuggly Wuggly in the colorways White and Cotton Candy and Bernat Softee Baby in the colorway Soft Lilac.
I am so pleased how this blanket turned out. I hope she will enjoy it. I know it isn’t the same as having something made by her grandmother, but hopefully she will curl up with it and have a sweet reminder of her childhood and know that she has a very thoughtful hubby too!
