But I think it might be lonely. It might need a pal.
I'm working on a wedding blanket for Laura and Anil, using an old Victorian pattern. The color is not accurate here; it's really a deep, winey red.
I wanted something that could be assembled in small pieces, so I didn't have a heavy blanket draped over my lap during steamy Connecticut River valley heat waves.
It is so pretty in Deerfield, with its baby alpaca and silk.
I have decided to make 30 squares, and use Nicky Epstein's Knitting on the Edge to create a botanically-themed edging . . . maybe leaves, maybe floral, maybe just an interesting scallop.
I hope Blankie will make some room on the bed! And I hope I can finish this in fewer than eleventy million years.
