Long lost baby blanket
Created By: Wendellyn Plummer

Twenty-nine(29) years ago I was expecting my first baby. Wanting to make something for my new baby I decided to learn how to knit. As I progressed through the pregnancy,building a new home,and working full time I began knitting "The Blanket". I choose a beautiful salmon color yarn and simple pattern. For some reason "The Blanket" didn't get finished. Then in 2001, tragedy struck our family and my youngest daughter was killed in a car accident at the age of 16. With the sudden shock and immense grief of my loss, my body went into complete revolt. I developed fibromyalgia and was in tremendous pain, both mentally and physically.Now we move ahead five(5) years to 2006 and my oldest daughter is engaged to be married. As I was looking for something I found the long forgotten blanket, never finished and still on the needles. Once again I was put on sick leave because of my fibromyalgia and I thought perhaps Knitting would help my hands as well as keep my mind busy and finish that blanket. Believe it or not I went back to the same knit shop, with the same owner and began knitting once again. It took a little while but I got back into the swing of knitting and Finished the baby blanket. At first my hands hurt, but each day my hands got stronger and I am still knitting.I have met some wonderful people, knitted some beautiful articles and my now married daughter loves the baby blanket she never got to be held in.

I know now that no matter what I go through I can and will always knit. Thanks for reading my story.
