I knit this blanket for my cousin's newborn baby.
I wanted to make something special for him because he's a miracle baby. My cousin has had 2 second trimester miscarriages in the past and was told she'd never be able to carry a baby to term. She switched doctors, consulted specialist, had a cerclage, and 37 weeks later she gave birth to her first and only child
on June 19th
She wouldn't let me knit anything for the baby until the beginning of June. It took her that long to feel everything would be ok.
