This is one of the reasons why we knit (crochet).

Diane knit several baby things in anticipation of her first grandchild.   This is called Old Shale Blanket, a lovely feather and fan design.
 This was a pattern she found online.  How adorable is this baby!  
Here is the capper, this is a sweater Diane’s mom knit 34 years ago.  What an incredibly special family heirloom.
Creating something for special people and occasions is one of the most rewarding things about our craft.
