A little over four years ago I knitted my Fluffy White Clouds blanket while watching the Winter Olympics and eagerly anticipating the arrival of my second child. My daughter arrived that summer and used the blanket most nights for the first year of her life. When she turned one, we decided the blanket should be put away and replaced with something a bit bigger.

Here I am again, a few years later, fondly remembering those early days with my daughter, while also being excited for the future: in just a few weeks time the blanket will be coming out of storage and being used by my third baby. I cannot wait.


  1. Wonderful It summarises the joy of making things by hand.

  2. Congratulations, that's lovely.
