Tidal blanket

Monday, July 31, 2017
It is finished! Ta daaa! The tidal blanket! And already gone, I gave it to my mum on Saturday. I miss it already, I loved this blanket, all cotton, but nice and heavy.

It took forever. But it was worth it. I did end up giving in before using all the yarn, which was my original plan. I should have had enough to make it the size of Lucy's (of Attic24) Ripple blanket. I was never going to do the border, I like the naked edges, and I love the ripple edges. Even with all my careful yarn planning, I suspect I was going to run out of the cream before any of the other colours. Plus, it took forever. I ended up measuring against myself, and stopped when it was long enough to have a good nap under on the sofa, even if you were stretched out. Being short, with a short mum, was a distinct advantage there.

The yarn was Lily Sugar'n cream, in the three denim colour ways and the cream was flecked with a denim blue speckle. We moved house before I finished it, and I haven't quite got my photo spots sorted here yet. The walls are all yellow, which presents lil monochrome me with quite the dilemma. So the morning just before I gave it to mum, I had my son model it down our local beach. It's folded almost double here, to keep it off the sand.

And now I feel a bit lost without it, it was my grounding project that was always there.

  1. Beautiful blanket Michelle.
    I'm glad your Mum likes it. You might have to make another one for yourself.
