handmade by Oma

18Jan10

Our Oma spent many months making this gorgeous crocheted blanket for us:

It arrived in a Christmas box and has been used daily ever since.  I cheekily ordered “Handmade by ….” labels for her off of Etsy to encourage more of this awesomeness.  It’s so nice to have a talented Oma.

Moonstitches posted about this sort of blanket a year (or two?) ago.  In this post, she mentioned the movie Nanny McPhee (she also talks about how to make this kind of blanket, if you are feeling up to it!).  If you haven’t seen this movie, you should.  It’s a great one for kids.  The kids’ room is a mess of art projects, handmade blankets, cool toys and colour.  They have a blanket like this.  Inspiring.
