I think her blanket is just beautiful and it is a "keepsake". If I didn't knit, I would certainly pay 55.00 for that blanket for my grandchild! You are a good friend and I think trying to sell it on esty a great idea.
There were so many good idea here! Mike had a great idea of teaching classes, she would make good money doing that ( although I do understand that there maybe problems getting your friend to the classes, maybe people could come to her home and have private classes). Also someone else said leaving cards at the O.B's office, great idea!
Where there is a will, there is usually a way!
