Waffle-Weave Baby Blanket Weaving Pattern Download
Weaving a baby blanket for an expected child is always a great joy for a weaver. Designer, Suzie Liles, wove these blankets for her granddaughter, Lillian, before she was born. As she wove, she kept her ultrasound photo and a photo of her son and his wife taped to the castle of her loom. Woven into the blankets are all her wishes and prayers for her and the life ahead of her.
