I am absolutely thrilled to be announcing the release of my very first blanket, “Sheila”. Knitted in Aran, it includes instructions to fit Car Seat, Pram and Cot and also a matching hat.
This blanket is a tribute to my mother who passed away March, 2021. I have a hole in my soul which will never be filled but I know she would have been proud. Linsey, one of the testers, said to me when she was knitting it, “Mammy will be going out for a walk with everyone when the child has this on their pram” and I loved that – so would Mammy.
Adding this blanket to the Mammy’s Love set would be a beautiful gift. (Pattern does not contain cardigan and bootees).

Wool & yarn recommendation…
I often get asked which wool I use and who my yarn supplier is! For this knit I have used Stylecraft Special Aran which I selected for its softness, it is very gentle on a baby’s skin. There are over 88 different shades available through LoveCrafts, who are my preferred yarn and wool supplier. (Spend over £25 to get free P&P and sign up their newsletter for 15% off your first order!)… I would also recommend Paintbox Aran for this pattern.
