Back when I started this little baby blanket for my middle daughter (last year after she was born), I had no idea she would develop such a love and attachment for blankets. She carries her blanky everywhere she goes, and she would drag it down the hallway and into the elevator everytime we left home if I let her. She doesn’t care which blanky she has as long as it meets her ‘softness’ requirements. Thankfully, I do believe that this blanket does just that, Alhumdulillah. I had initially planned on crocheting the blanket one solid colour, but then the shop where I purchased the yarn stopped carrying that particular shade. So my plans changed and I then decided to add 4 similar hues to the edges of the blanket. I think I like it better this way, anyway. Sometimes I feel bad that I wasn’t able to nurse her for a full 2 years, and that she is no longer able to cosleep with her Mama. But I hope that this blanky gives her comfort now that she is sleeping in her big girl bed in her big sister’s room, and I hope that it keeps her warm now that the cold weather has arrived.
