The best news you can get is that your friends are expecting a baby! The excitement and happiness of the moment does not get lost, no matter how many times you get such news. One of my best friends shared with me this news, after we ran together a 4 km woman race. Yes, she is a super-girl! 🙂
I made this little blanket for her son, and I have to confess I was a bit late and did not manage in time for the birth. I got to see the baby after a couple of hours after he was born and this was a total thrill – I held a miracle in my arms that was not even 1 day old (or better to say young 🙂 )!
The blanket was made of cotton yarn following the Fish Ripples pattern from the wonderful book Comfort Knitting and Crochet: Afghans.
