A Good Luck Rainbow


Hi, Knitters,
JillShoke (rav id) shared a heartwarming story on the Itty-Bitty Knits group the other day. With Jill's permission to use the story and her incredibly sweet photographs, I am now sharing the story with all of  you. Here is how one knitter's wishes came true.....

From Jill:

I just wanted to share some sweet pictures and the story that goes along with them.
This past summer my stepdaughter and her husband were visiting us. I had just finished a log cabin blanket out of Tahki Classic (Joseph’s blankie of many colors) for my new grand-niece. My son-in-law shared the story of his sister and her husband who after several years of trying to have a baby, were now looking to adopt… and were in final “talks” with a couple of expectant mothers.
I decided to whip up an adorable Rainbow Marley with my scraps and send it home with them for “good luck."


2 weeks later, this sweet couple found out that they would become parents….. and 2 months later they brought home this sweet little babe….




And now, 5 months after that (just in time for cooler weather!!) Baby Allison is the smiliest, laughing-est, sweetest little girl you can imagine! That’s my hubby getting some “not quite a grandpa but a guy can practice” snuggles!
Susan, thank you for such a great, sweet pattern!

It's me again. Jill, thank you for sharing this uplifting happy story. I think baby Allison is about the best thing ever. She makes me happy just looking at her. I can only imagine the joy she is bringing your family. 
And if it's possible, she's even better with your Rainbow Marley Hat on top!
Thanks again.
best, susie
p.s. The hat pattern is found here (Itty-Bitty Hats book) and here (Ravelry link). The tutorial for the hat topper is found here. Oh, and there is one more video tutorial on weaving in ends using the Rainbow Marley hat right here.

What a lovely story! As an adoptive mum, it means a lot to me to hear adoption stories. :) Allison is adorable! And so is her lucky hat. I'm sure this baby girl is much loved and enjoyed. samm@ravelry
