A Mommy Blanket is an afghan you create for a pregnant woman or new mom. It’s a gift for her and her alone and has nothing to do with babies. It isn’t cutesy (unless that’s her style) and it is barely practical, although entirely comforting. It should be made from yarn too nice for baby puke, and in colors and a stitch pattern that reflects the pre-parent personality of the recipient. The best Mommy Blankets also have foot pockets.
