One of the advantages of taking such a long break from blogging is spending more time making stuff to blog about. (When not screwing around on Facebook, that is.) This morning, I finished this blanket:
Pattern: Airy Spring Throw by Marianne Forestal, from Crochet Today! Mar/Apr 2009
Yarn: Bernat Berella 4 in Winter White, roughly 8 1/2 skeins, or 1568 yards.
Hook: H and J
Skill level: Easy peasy
Satisfaction with end result: LOVE!!! I don't think the picture does it justice. This is flat gorgeous, if I do say so myself. And the fabric, once the finished piece had been washed and dried, is soooo soft and cozy, but still lightweight. It's intended as a gift. Now I just have to discover who I made it for.
