Don’t miss out: Get Martha’s Guide to Knitting — it’s the exclusive resource for knitters of all skill levels.
Here at Martha Stewart, we're all about handmade gifts — especially when it comes to a new addition to the family — so when we heard the story behind these adorable knitted rockets gifted to Pharrell Williams at the Academy Awards last night... we just had to share it.
Last month, Williams and his wife Helen Laishchanh welcomed triplets to their family, which already includes their 8-year-old son (whose name just happens to be "Rocket" by the way.) Williams was a music producer on the Oscar-nominated film Hidden Figures, which is why Ryan Seacrest presented him with three knitted rocket-themed baby toys, as a nod not only to the new additions to the family, but to the film as well. The rockets — knitted by Sheila Ortiz — were gifted to the happy couple by Seacrest on the red carpet and they couldn't have offered a more perfect gift.
"This is the coolest thing I've ever been given on the carpet before," Williams exclaimed to Seacrest.

We only wish that we had come up with this idea first, especially since (fun fact) Martha herself is a fan of Pharrell.
