Baby Blanket HOPE - for Joy
The Log Cabin Blanket is the pattern "How to Log Cabin" by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne, made with Kauni Effektgarn 8/2, Rainbow EQ, color scheme by Phazelia (Ravelry).
Please read the story behind this particular blanket on Ravelry. It was made as a gift to Joy, who gave us so much hope in difficult times.
Thank you Joy - hopefully your lovely baby daughter Holly will like the blanket!
"Dear Joy, you untiringly gave us hope when my husband suffered a stroke this May and gave him the strength to pursue his goal to walk again. You are expecting a baby - and with every stitch I knitted at the bedside of my husband I wove in our gratitude and hope - and so for us, your baby’s middle name will always be HOPE.
Thank you forever."
