I finished this blanket a few weeks ago, It took me about 3 years on and off, I have dragged it out every winter determined to finish it. I initially planned to make it double bed sized, then single bed sized, then finally lap size. I remember those last few stitches and how good they felt. I know I showed it on IG a few weeks ago, but I thought it deserving of its own post.
I have kind of stitched the ends in, but not neatly. I like its little loose threads, I like that the edge is really wonky as I wasn't doing the ends properly, or changing colours "correctly" but I like all that about it. I like that its not perfect.
I like that I hooked some of it with the Bellingen Hookers at cafes around town, hookin' and learning and sharing and chatting with like-minded women and watching small ones and drinking coffee.
I know Marlo appreciates it, she sleeps with it in bed, and understands how long it took me, but I wonder if she knows or understands how much love is hooked within those stitches, that often late at night while I was alone hookin away, I was thinking how I much I love her and how much I love making this blanket for her that she can wrap herself in when I am not around. I hope it stays with her forever.
SO EXCITED to be back at My Creative Space. Thanks for hosting Kirsty. Its so nice to be back!
