About the same time this little guy arrived at our home, I started crocheting a blanket.
I wanted to crochet a blanket for a boy, who lost his mom 4 years ago.
By the end of November last year, we had lost Milo’s sweet little brother Peanut (no photos of him in this post – it’s too sad).
Milo went on holiday with us, but the blanket stayed behind.
After 2 months, I picked up the blanket again. By this time Milo was strong and healthy.
I chose a very simple granny square pattern for the blanket and an even simpler edge in cream. The one kissing Milo is my daughter, Christi.
Milo gets kisses ALL THE TIME.
Predominantly brown, the blanket has 2 cream squares and only one navy. Life is unpredictable.
And blankets can be too.
Milo, around April 2015.
I finished working away the loose ends only about 2 weeks ago.
I guess LIFE got in the way.
And tonight, wrapped in tissue paper, this blanket will find it’s home.
