Today was 'Show and Tell' day at Scarlette's pre-school and she INSISTED on bringing the red heart blanket you knitted for her when she was born. She is still in love with it :)
I don't think it can get any better than that. Can it? Because honestly I am downright flattered and feeling all the FEELS because something that I enjoyed knitting is still loved by someone I hoped would love it. This simple little comment MADE. MY. DAY. Maybe even MY WEEK. Possibly even my YEAR. It meant so much that her little one still loves it.
The blanket in question? This one.
I do know the fate of some of my blankets, the "Little Beef" blanket is in shreds, loved to pieces by the little one I made it for. (Torn to shreds = loved = still feel really good that the kid liked it... even if they wrecked it.) The Pink Insanity Blanket, Moving Mountains and The Leaf blanket have all been in the professional "newborn photoshoot" pics I get, which is also insanely flattering to me. And even the Diamond Cable Blanket, which damn near BROKE me, received high compliments from the couple it was sent to, who sent a note to say they had been looking for something in stores for exactly what I knit them for the baby's room.
Needless to say, I'll be flying high on that compliment for awhile and I HAD to share. And because I thought you might be interested... here we are at 17", beginning ball 6/9 on my current project!
Happy Friday Everyone!
