I found your blanket at the Salvation Army.
It was so wonky but the colours sing together and so I brought it home and washed it.
I'm pretty sure you were disappointed with how it turned out
because it was in brand-new condition, but I want you to know
that it doesn't matter to us one little bit.
It is so soft and snuggly and warm and just the right size for a little person on the sofa.
It's fun to roll about on with your favourite friends.
Or just for sitting and thinking.
Even for play fighting.
It makes a great cape to run back to bed after a trip to the river
And is just right to put over your legs to keep the bugs away at night.
It works great to keep you warm if you forgot your cardy too.
So thank you Grandma, we love this blanket.
We appreciate all the work in it and the lovely Christmassy colours.
You didn't need to be disappointed because a wonky blanket
can still do all the things a perfect blanket can.
Actually probably more, because it can!
