Patchwork and Harlequin blankets .Baby’s knitted blankets


Knitting for a baby is a gesture of love. It is a prayer, a meditation .As we form each stitch, we express with our fingers our dreams and hopes for the baby’s health and happiness.If we are knitting while pregnant, it is a way of connecting with the baby inside. If we are knitting for the baby of a friend or family member, it is a way of sharing in their joy. When babies wear what we have made for them they are wrapped in our love—safe, warm, and protected.

Both of us have been knitting for a long time.
