Award Winning Blanket

March 14, 2011

I’m very excited that Althea was the recipient of an amazing baby blanket, made by the very talented, and award winning knitter Jen.  Seriously, she wins tons of ribbons each year for knitting at the Calgary Stampede. 

Althea has been using it to stay warm whilst practicing holding her head up (and eating her hand as well).  So talented that girl. 

And this rare sight, Althea sleeping under the blanket downstairs in her bassinet.  These events don’t usually happen very often, or for very long.  Althea still prefers to nap on me when downstairs.  The blanket is just beautiful, and will be treasured always by me, and hopefully by Althea.  However if she wants to love it day and night, and to the point that it gets dirty and frayed, I hope that is alright by you as well Jen, as that means it was really, really loved.  Truly wonderful gifts are used until they wear out!
