Family Heirloom

Last week when my grandmother came in to town for my baby shower, she surprised me with the blanket my mother came home from the hospital in.

When she saw that the tag read 'Knitown', she thought I might be interested in it.  I fell in love the moment she presented it to me.  

She explained that the blanket has been in their cedar chest for the past 35 years, and she decided to clean it up a bit.  In the process, there was a little casualty: 

It shouldn't be too hard to mend.  It doesn't seem to be fraying. Since it's on a seam, everything seems to be staying intact. 

I am looking forward to bringing this blanket to the hospital with me, and bringing our own bundle of joy home in it. 

Have any of you ever heard of Knitown Products?  A google search doesn't come up with much, and I can't seem to find any information on the company.  Any info would be greatly appreciated!
