LK Personals: the most meaningful thing Helen ever knit
Many of us knit for loved ones, and when we knit a little piece of our heart goes into the project. Read on to see the most meaningful thing that Helen ever knit.
Helen wanted to make something special for her friend who lives on the other side of the world. This is the finished project – a stunning lace baby blanket, knitted in grey 4 ply yarn with tender care. Helen says,
I knitted it for my friend’s second baby, but totally bit off more than i could chew as it was only the third thing i had ever knitted. I started in September last year, in time for his due date just before Christmas (or so I thought). I finally sent it to him in March this year! But for me it really represents what knitting and homemade gifts are all about – I really miss my friend and her children and she now has something which really shows her that – there are over 60,000 stitches in it, and i thought of them on the other side of the world every time i knitted. I remember sending her a text with this photo saying don’t think i never think of you – i am thinking of you every day – on the train, in the pub, and in front of the telly.
Helen’s international friend loved the blanket, and told Helen that her baby had to be taken to A&E (the emergency room), and the baby was wrapped in Helen’s blanket. Seeing that blanket made her friend feel like Helen’s love was there in the waiting room, even from across an ocean.
We all knit things for people we love: a baby blanket, a wedding shawl, or a winter hat to keep out the chill. Each of these things are knitted with love, with emotion and care poured into every single stitch. Here at LoveKnitting HQ, we’re no different – we knit for our loved ones just like our readers do!
