What is this little bit of knitting K.C. is watching over? A skinny scarf? A swatch, perhaps?
Nope, it is neither of these things. This little bit of knitting is actually a baby blanket. An itty bitty baby blanket. Kathy put out a call for "cookie sheet blankets". No, not for tucking in cookies! For tucking in little preemies in the NICU where Kathy works. They must be machine washable and no larger than a 9 x 13 cookie sheet. Other than that, you are free to knit it up any way you choose. She is even making a little contest out of it, so hurry over to sign up.
I am so thrilled to be able to be a part of this. I have to admit, knitting it up and seeing how small it is breaks my heart. As hard as I try, I can't imagine a little tiny baby small enough to be covered by this wisp of knitting. As I knit, I'm pouring love and strength into this blanket and I'm hoping the little one who receives it will feel comforted and strong.
