Somnus - a lovely blanket for the littlest ones

This design is part of a little collection inspired by the works of the famous Danish-Norwegian poet and author Ludvig Holberg. Holberg lived from 1684-1754, and even though this is a long time ago, he had a very special talent for showing – and exposing – different types of people, which is a big part of what makes him relevant still today.

This lovely blanket is inspired by Holberg’s comedy ”Barselsstuen”. Although women no longer have an extended period of confinement after birth where they are to remain in bed to recover, the particular mood of the ”barselsstue” after a new baby is born with well meaning maternity advice, gossip and chatter still exists. Most bring a gift for the new baby and this sweet blanket worked in a simple slip-stitch technique would make a lovely gift.
