Isn't it beautiful? It could fit a king size bed! She obviously used a really small gauge hook so it must have taken her forever to make this blanket! I will certainly cherish it! Here are a few more detailed pictures:
This week I also received an awesome package from Brie. Look at how she spoils me with yummy yarn!!
I'm thinking that the multicolored wool wants to be a felted purse, and the green yarn will be used for my last travelling scarf seed. Not sure about the rest though. I am making her a red Twilight hat in return - almost done!
Today I received 2 travelling scarves in the mail. Its part of a freestyle knit and crochet group, but for some reason both are requesting specific knit patterns! (kinda bugs me since its supposed to be freestyle & crochet too!)
For one of them I had known in advance that she was doing a knit pattern and we had agreed that I would crochet a border on it once it was complete, so I was surprised when I received her starter seed. I took a look at the pattern and decided - I'm going to give it a shot! Thanks to my Nonna's needles and youtube I am now knitting the "scrunchable stitch!" Can you believe it? It doesn't look half bad!
Now the other one is requesting a chevron/ripple stitch, I don't know about that...
I also started this cute caplet sweater about a month ago but haven't gotten around to taking a picture of it yet:
So many projects, so little time...
