Rainbow Star Blanket

Over the past 18 months of this pandemic, our nearest cousins have been the family that we’ve been most likely to see. The only time we’ve been prevented from seeing them is when outdoor gatherings were restricted to no more than 2 adults from 2 households, or when we were not allowed to cross local authority boundaries even to meet up 5 miles away. It was when those restrictions dragged on that we found out about our little cousin’s planned arrival. To send my love to the family, I started his blanket.

Luckily, restrictions eased in the spring and we could spend time outdoors with them again. This also meant that by the time he was born last month his grandparents have been able to travel to meet him. Two weekends ago, armed with negative lateral flow tests, food, and gifts, we got to see him. It was a joy to welcome him to the family, play with his big sister, and catch up with his parents. Although we enjoy meeting up to walk in the woods or play outside, it was also pretty special to be able to relax together indoors.

I used Kat Goldin’s Star Rug from Crochet at Play for Little One’s blanket, and painted a rainbow of wooden dolls as a ‘Big Sister’ gift.
