Finally after months of secrecy, I can reveal my knitting group’s secret project:
A Blanket for Debbie! Debbie has been in our knitting group for years, and when she announced that she was getting married, we wanted to make something for her. The idea of a blanket was tossed around and I vehemently opposed. I really hated seaming together the baby blanket that we knit as a gift a long time ago. Then Abby stepped up and took charge. After a few weeks of pumping Debbie for color and yarn information, we were knitting blue squares.
The blanket is made of Plymouth Encore (superwash wool acrylic blend) and is the combined knitting efforts of Abby, Carmen, Ingrid, Sarah, Sarah B, Wenonah, B, Gen, Mary and myself. The square pattern is from Fun Knits. We added a double crochet border, and Abby hand embroidered a tag. (Peek here if you want to see us piecing it together.)
I think she likes it!
