Faith's blanky

Today I received a wonderful surprise gift from my grandmother and five aunts (my mom's five sisters). They worked together to knit a beautiful baby blanket for Faith. The blanket is pink with ruffled edges and an Angel pattern. Each panel of the blanket was knit seperately and with great care. Apparently my grandmother knit one of the panels thirty times over before she felt it was good enough to use. It is absolutely perfect... I cannot believe the work they put into making such a thoughtful gift. They also wrote a poem, and part of it goes like this:

"As we gathered together to make this blanket of Angels,
each stitch was knitted with love, compassion, and care,
to send a message to you, to know that we are all there."
