Not too long ago I was an expecting mother. Like any expecting mother who knits I made a couple of beautiful baby blankets. Then I became a new mother and very much sleep deprived for 2 years. When you are in that state, the last thing you need is another annoyance, right? It seems like every time I would use the baby blanket it would end up “wrong side up”. Seems petty but when you are sleep deprived nothing is little.
The design of this blanket came from memories of those feelings: it is very pretty, lacy, soft and 100% reversible!
Once you cast off your stitches you yourself will have a hard time telling the “right” side from “wrong.” Less stress is a good thing, right? (and the best present for that friend of yours... :))
