11  My first topic -- Mari's baby blanket in Knitting: Completed Projects by tangemeenie on: August 24, 2005 12:12:05 PM
I've been knitting for about 2 years now, though my knitting projects have mostly been small rectangles.  I decided that I would do one big rectangle and move on to something more complicated.  

I had already been working on this baby blanket for about 3 months when I found out I was pregnant.  I was excited that I happened to be knitting something I could use for the baby!  I had about 50 rows to go when the worst happened.  I found out at 18 weeks that my daughter had anencephaly, a neural tube defect that is, as the doctor said, "incompatible with life".  My daughter Mari was born and died on July 7, 2005.  

I decided that I needed to finish the blanket before her memorial service.  It is, after all, Mari's blanket.  I finished it on a Thursday, two days before the memorial service.  It is a treasure to me now.
