breathing dreams

~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

I knit a blanket,
this blanket to be precise.
Jared Flood of course,
but then you probably
guessed that.
I used this yarn
in the color Kumlien's  gull
Oh so smooshy and soft.
Each stitch carefully knit
as I dream of the day my
newest grand will arrive
and lay his sweet little head
down on a blanket filled
with love.


  1. Congratulations. What a sweet baby and a blanket filled with love just for him! Lovely post.

  2. Oh my goodness, that is so sweet! Don't you wish we could have had baby "pictures" like that when we were pregnant with our babies?

  3. It is beautiful Tracey. So much anticipation as you await the arrival of this little one :)

  4. Congratulations!!
    Very nice post and sweet words full of love :)

    Lluisa xoxo

  5. your last photo brought tears to my eyes, how precious and what a blessing! Looks like you had a beautiful day :) Love the blanket!

  6. You are fast, lady, whipping out this wonderful baby blanket for this precious bambino incubating in his mama's tummy.

  7. You have put a smile on my face between the pretty blanket and the precious wee one. So much to look forward to!

  8. Beautiful blanket! and what a great picture of your newest grand baby. he or she is smiling! I got one of those 3-D scans of Violet at 26 weeks and she looked just like she did when she was born at 40 weeks. Technology is amazing.

  9. We are waiting too ... if only my dodgy shoulder wasn't stopping me knitting for our grand baby.

  10. Tracey, the blanket is beautiful!! Such great texture in this post - the moss, the lichens, the thick yarn - love it.

  11. what an amazing ultrasound picture !!! The blanket is going to be gorgeous around him Tracey !!!

  12. I love those 3D ultra sounds. I just wish that I had one done when I was pregnant with Miss C.

  13. I love your blanket and picture of your new grandbaby! What a wonderful way to welcome him or her into the world! Your posts make me happy and you always give me something to think about. Thank you, Katrine
    btw, would you mind telling me where you got the giraffe tote? I love it!!

  14. Oh my goodness- there is so much goodness in this post- how lovely! Beautiful blanket it will surely be well loved!

  15. All those blues and greens are so soft and gentle, just like that beautiful blanket you have made! A precious gift for a precious gift :) XO
