Tangerine Baby Blanket, the story of …

This is my old friend Miguel, I call him my “home slice”

Happy Couple

Miguel, together with his gorgeous wife Sara announced they were expecting a baby …

A few months later I took some holiday time in Cuba. I brought with my one ball of tangerine-coloured yarn and a crochet needle. And got to work on a baby blanket.

I completed the blanket and received many compliments from

beach goers to passengers on the plane. What I loved most about this blanket was that I brought it back and it smelled like the ocean and the sun and beach.

A few months later i’m happy to report my blanket found a home, nestled around Miguel and Sara’s newborn.

  1. N@,

    this was awesome. So is the comforter. I’ll tell you, it’s a favorite of mommy and little one. It’s always in her baby bag. You’re by far, the Muhammad Ali of the crotch-eting world.

    We three thank thee…
