Dad and daughter are knitting together a baby blanket that will be a gift to their two sons.
The couple will have a little one in February.
They are both knitters, and were inspired by their daughters, who had been collecting knitting needles.
“I think our kids have a love of the craft, and that is something that is hard to replicate for them,” said Ms Stinson.
“And I love knitting.
I’m not a knitter by trade, so knitting was something I really wanted to be able to do.”
Their little boy, Dylan, will also have a hand in it, with his dad, Andrew, designing the blanket.
Dylan’s first Christmas will be on New Year’s Day, when he’ll be aged three and he’ll get to wear the blanket himself.
He’s going to have his first Christmas with his grandmother, Ms Stenson, who has two other children.
“He’s got to be a little bit excited, and I think that’s a good thing because I love the way he plays with it, and he loves playing with the toys,” she said.
Mr Stinson said the knitting was a way to get Dylan a little more involved.
“[He’s] going to be knitting all the time.
He’s not going to do all the knitting, but he’s going on the internet and reading about it and making videos, and we want him to have fun and make it his own.”
Ms Stinson’s mum, Ms Mary, has a knitting blog.
The couple said they were inspired to create the blanket after reading an article in a magazine about knitting needles and how they could be used for a baby’s blanket.
They thought about the idea and had a brainstorming session with their daughter, who said the article reminded her of knitting with her little brother.
She said she was intrigued by the idea of using knitting needles for a child’s blanket, and they were able to make it a reality.
When they realised Dylan would be doing the knitting they had a big brainstorming event, and Mr Stinson came up with a way they could combine the knitting with other crafts.
“We just started to think about it, I mean, what is a blanket that looks like a baby and how do we do that?
It was just so cool and just something that we thought would be a fun way to do it,” Ms Stinchinson said.
A baby blanket made from knitting needles will be the subject of a new Christmas video series that will run on MTV.
MTV has commissioned a documentary, ‘Mama Knits’, about knitting and knitting needles, and the programme will air on Christmas Day.
