This is the opening illustration for our new children's book, Freddie's Blanket. My husband Eric did an amazing job of capturing the feel I wanted for this new story, and this first illustration might just be my favorite one of them all. He carefully studied my knitting pattern design, the Baby Envelope, while creating this drawing, and I just love the beauty of this simple moment.
The Baby Envelope is one of five new knitting patterns included in our new knitting picture book. My only regret is that I didn't come up with this pattern sooner- when our three children were still babies! The Baby Envelope is uniquely designed with one extra wide flap which can be tucked under and around the sleeping babe.
Simple and sweet.
