Got Milk?

Knitwits Yarns

Those of you who have been reading this for a while may remember that, back in July 2011, we were lucky enough to be invited to the wedding of some good friends of ours:

It was a glorious and very happy day and, as Stephen is a dairy farmer, there was something of a cow theme going on:

Roll on 2.5 years and, as is the way of these things (if you're lucky), a small addition to the family has now arrived - baby Henry.  So, what do you give a baby of dairy farmers?  A blanket with cows on it, of course!:

I knitted the blanket back in the summer and then waited for his arrival before crocheting on a suitable coloured edging and swiss darning his initials.

Welcome to the world wee Henry - you're a very lucky boy to have a set of truly lovely parents.

(We'll have to open a book on whether his first word will be "tractor" or "cow"!!)
