I’m back in Chicago, kind of, although not moving into a permanent home until the end of the month. Friday afternoon I got to spend a few happy hours with great friends who we missed dearly over this past year – and cuddle with Gossy. Bonkers remains a bit suspicious of me and I don’t blame him. The cats had a rough time while we were away until our friends intervened and took them in.
Gossy still knows all my crafts are really for her. ❤
So, now onto the blanket:
Secondary recipient: Fancy baby #2 (Fancy baby #1, the older sibling, received a cardigan, hat and booties 2.5 years ago)
Pattern: Ocean Tranquility Afghan (Link takes you to Ravelry and contains a direct pdf download. My browser tells me the designer’s own site has been infected with malware, so I’d recommend not venturing off Ravelry over there.)
According to the stickers on the skeins, the yarn alone in this blanket is worth ~$140US. I think I’ve never worked with anything this nice before. And it’s really nice. Soft, warm, and cuddly. Fancy baby, indeed!
