The Do-Over, All Done

imageRemember the blanket that was my vacation project? It’s all done now. And it’s beautiful.

The knitting? Not perfect. But the blanket that was the result of all those do-overs? Soft and cushy and wonderful.

imageI believe I paid more for this Spud & ChloĆ« yarn (four hanks of Outer, two hanks of Sweater) than I’ve ever paid for yarn. But the hand of this yarn—55% superwash wool and 45% organic cotton—is what makes the blanket feel so wonderful. I can envision making one four times the size for the adults in the family to cuddle up in.

All the trouble I had constructing this blanket? Totally worth it.

I’m not sure who will be the recipient of this blanket, but that’s one lucky baby!

(Oh, and I made the teddy bear, too.)
