Knitting something together is fun!
I just got the news that one of our colleagues at work gave birth to a baby boy a few days ago. And this is the present we gave her already when she left on maternity leave:
Everyone helped out by knitting or crocheting at least a few patches, and then I volunteered to crochet them all together. I have to admit that when I first got all the patches in all the different colours, it was quite hard to picture a nice, harmonious baby blanket. All the patches were just so different! But I think it turned out absolutely lovely in the end! It's got some special kind of charm about it. Sweet and colourful, but yet quite peaceful.
