Oddball Preemie Charity Blanket

Angel Kisses

This is the charity knitting preemie blanket project I spoke of previously, which I'm also doing through Knitting Help. I used Lion Brand Microspun, a buttery soft, 100% microfiber acrylic DK weight yarn. The color is white. We were to do this blanket in pastels. The knitter, Doodleknit at KH, who began the blanket used a soft and pretty aqua. I thought the white microspun, though not technically a pastel, looked especially pretty next to it.
I decided to follow the same pattern Doodleknit used, which she thoughtfully printed and included with the blanket when she mailed it to me. It's Basketweave 2.
This blanket is named "Angel Kisses". Isn't that a sweet name for a soft blanket which will be wrapped around a tiny little infant? It's a sad fact that this blanket could even end up being wrapped around a tiny little baby with no life in it; in which case, it won't warm the baby, but hopefully it will help warm the hearts of the parents who will get to hold that dear one at least once this side of Heaven.
