No doubt, some are wondering what I've been up to. Friends, I cannot tell you how many times I have frogged my square(s). My "multicolored bobble extravaganza" was not, repeat not, a smashing success. (It turns out that a gazillion bobbles may look okay on a wall hanging, or on the hat of a person with strange taste in clothing, but for a blanket...well, it just doesn't work. Totally.)
So...(sniff, whimper) - back to the drawing board. (Whatever could I do??) I tried diagonals. No good. Intarsia. No...still looks bad...OMG, the clock is ticking!
Finally I knew that I had to stop fussing with this, or Jodie will come over here and yank it out of my busy, busy hands.
So. Now. As the last rays of sunset gently illuminate our yard...I think I almost have enough time for a quick photo of Our Blanket, as it is today. Behold, and click to enlarge:
It's Yikes, Stripes, in Mission Falls 1824 superwash merino. And on one end, a little row of...you guessed it. A few bobbles! They look like little mulberries.
Dear Bon, I'm sorry I've kept this so long. (Although I notice that you are enormously busy with other things now!)
And you know what? I wish I could add another piece to this blanket. But I've already kept it for weeks. It is long past time for it to move on.
