Portia Jenkins stopped by the LaPlata shop this morning to share her progress on a smashing cobalt blue baby blanket in ever-soft, easy-care, ever-reliable Vintage. Baby to arrive shortly. She's doing a gorgeous job, and she only started a week ago. But even more beautiful than the blanket is that smile! The delight in the making, the pride in the outcome, the joy of sharing something made with our own hands with those we love best--aren't those the reasons we're all knitters? Knit on, Portia!
