Go Granny Go

My friend and her husband are adopting a little boy from Korea. In this day and age there's nothing unusual about that, right? Well, this little boy has down syndrome. And he is their first child. First child. Down syndrome. Now how cool is that?

Don't worry. The mum-to-be has lots of experience with special needs kiddos and down syndrome in particular.!

I want to make something to encourage the mum and welcome Little Boy to his new home. Hmmmm....And then I saw the Granny A Day challenge over at Meet Me At Mike's. One granny square per day through May. That would be just the right number for a blanket for this little tyke. Goodness knows blankets are useful up here in the frozen North.

I've got too many irons in the fire to get too creative or experimental with this project. I'm doing regular granny squares just like I've been making for the past 30 15 years. I'm going to try to post an update once a week with a little tidbit of info either about adoption or down syndrome. Just a little FYI. (I personally know almost nothing about Down Syndrome.)

If you love your grannies, pop over to Meet Me At Mike's and join the group too.
(P.S. I did not make Puppy Dog--he's a gift from a friend.)
