So, I made a totally awesome blanket for my dearest, and shipped it off and now it’s in Idaho and I forgot to take any pictures of it. But it really was an awesome blanket. Since then I’ve picked up a few projects that somehow worked their way to the bottom of my crafting box (well, the bottom ONE of my crafting boxes.. I’ve got several at the moment, way too many 1/2 finished projects!)
This blanket is teaching me patience, perserverance and humility.
I’m using some scrumptious merino-wool blend yarn that’s soft as can be, and really nice to work with. It feels good in your hands. Unfortunately, due to it’s silky nature it shows EVERY little mistake. And if you know me, you know that I tend to just keep going instead of taking it out and re-doing it. Not so with this blanket. If you mess up it SHOWS!
I am not entirely sure how big it’s going to be, because it’s kind of tiresome to work on, but I still have at least 4 skeins of it in my craft bag, and I’ll just use it all up and however big it is, that’s how big it’s going to stay!
Have a great weekend!
