if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll remember that this once happened. and then at the cusp of week 13, about a year ago, the weekend before MDSW, the post script to this post happened.
and then chaos ensued including a sick mother-in-law and travel 31 days in 3 months followed directly by ben’s hardest (read: busiest) semester of school yet. so, who’s this blanket for? this blanket is for the hope that some day the first part of that might happen again. hopefully soon.
frankly, this yarn was lovely and soft – mostly farm wool bfl – and i knew it was destined to be this. so i made it. even though it makes me slightly sad to look at and slightly embarrassed to talk about who it’s for – because there is no who yet.
this was my go-to brainless project for the last month or two. i loved mixing the handspun with commercial in a larger project and i’m pretty certain that another soft handspun will be used to make a square version too. we’ll wait for the right yarn though and maybe we’ll be pregnant again by then.
i had to adjust the colors quite a bit on these photos due to my camera hating both lime green and turquoise. hardest thing to take photos of EVER! the handspun actually picks up on the blue and the lime commercial wools really well and the turquoise is darker.
