Kari: Queen of Hearts Lace-edged Preemie Blanket


Well, here it is in all its splendor! LOL Tim's sister is due any day now and I wanted to make her something special. Hats and beanies had lost their luster so I thought I'd attempt something a little fancier. I didn't know at the time that the "lace" was to be attached AFTER the body of the blanket was complete. It's only by God's grace that I ended up with the proper amount of lace to sew on the outer edge. It fit PERFECT. The blanket itself is not big, only 18" x 19" including lace. The original Lion Brand pattern called for Cashmere but I used a wool blend.
I'd like to attach a verse or prayer to this blanket......Of course, Psalm 139 comes to mind but I'd love to hear other ideas or suggestions too.

How about Psalm 23?

Kari, I can't believe how quickly you finished that! You weren't even done with the lace the night before! It's gorgeous. Your sister-in-law will love it. :)
