I met Molly a few weeks ago through Kathy, owner of some Green Sheep blankets (see here). While we were talking, it came up that Molly’s mom’s 80th birthday is around the corner. What a milestone! Molly put on her thinking cap and recalled a sweater of her late dad’s, and….ahhh!….another blanket started brewing.
Molly’s mom is Irish through and through. She has devoted her life to her family and still loves taking care of them. She also loves to read, and has a comfy brown chair in which to do exactly that. Molly wondered if I could make a throw to keep her warm in that comfy brown chair.
I hope I have. As usual, it was a delight to see what sweaters and colors would come together with the “seed” of the first one. (In the photo below, the ribbed piece over the arm of the rocker is from Molly’s dad’s sweater.)
As Molly talked about her, it wasn’t hard to see how much her family loves her. So, for Molly’s mom on a very special birthday, here is “Love in Your Heart.” The name comes from this simple and lovely Irish blessing:
“May you be blessed with warmth in your home,
love in your heart, peace in your soul,
and joy in your life.”
It sounds as if those blessings have already been bestowed :) .
“Love in Your Heart” (Size: 50″ x 60″)
This throw was a custom order.
