designed by pearl bloom but revived by jody sherman :)

from jody: “My Aunt Pearl knitted for most of her life and she almost always had something on her needles. As she got older she realized that she would not be able to continue to knit for much longer as she was having trouble with her hands. So she made it her mission to make each of her grandkids a baby sweater, hat and blanket to put away for when they have kids (just in case she wasn’t around to see her great-grand children). When she was done she made my children each the same for their future children.

“Each sweater, hat, and blanket is different reflecting how she felt at the moment and the person she was making it for. She pulled each pattern from within her heart and created a masterpiece each time. This particular blanket pattern was knit for my oldest daughter’s future children. Aunt Pearl died before seeing all of her great-grand kids and before seeing any of my children’s children, but her memory lives on in the knits she created.”

also needed: cable and tapestry needles.
