file under: Wow!

We went to visit some friends last weekend. She is a talented knitter who once owned a knitting shop in New Jersey. And look what she made the baby!

The entire blanket is fairisle - even the ruffle at the edges. The pattern is from Jean Moss, and apparently I've been hiding under a rock because I've never heard of her! She designed sweaters for Ralph Lauren and many other well-known designers once upon a time, and I don't know where I've been to not know this.

People have amazed me with their generous and thoughtful gifts for this kid.
