Welcoming a miracle!



I have already confessed how excited I get about baby news! No wonder, when my friends told me they were expecting, after sharing the joy, I said “Oh, I’m gonna crochet something.. A baby blanket!”

I was very happy that the soon-to-be mommy took part in the making of this blanket. We looked together at different patterns, discussed what kind of yarn to use and finally we went together to choose the color. We spent a lovely afternoon in various yarn and hobby shops, where I couldn’t resist and bought some more materials for future projects (not that I don’t have enough at home!).

My friends were in my neighborhood the other weekend, and I rushed to give them the blanket that was still drying, so that they can have it when the baby comes. I completely forgot to take pictures 🙂 This one was taken later by the mommy and I think the baby room is the best setting for it 😉

The baby-girl was born today! What can be more wonderful than this?


The blanket was crocheted from Schachenmayr Catania cotton yarn (450 grams) with hook no. 3 following the Zigzag crochet baby blanket pattern.
