This post is from Rose, who works in the Lion Brand sales department.

For the past six months, I have been teaching a crochet class for Lion Brand associates. A few months ago, a Lion Brand associate mentioned that he and his wife were expecting their first child. Our crochet group joined together to create their first baby blanket. Each member crocheted or knitted two squares with Vanna’s Choice Baby. The result was a beautiful baby blanket, which we presented to our co-worker Michael and his wife Tracy during their baby shower on September 8, 2008.

We are grateful to Lion Brand Yarn, who donated the yarn, and to all of those associates who contributed to the gift with their handiwork.

Our knit and crochet team are (from left to right): Gina, Ling, Anny, Mily, the future parents Tracy & Michael, Marlene, Maya and Carla, (bottom row, left to right): Carolyn, Nicole, Danielle and Rose. Hilary is not in the photo, but also participated as knitter.
