Here’s a perfect example of my inability to avoid projects that might be less than enjoyable… I love natural fibers above all things… But my kids adore this thick blanket yarn (Bernat Baby Blanket), and have a variety of things made from it. They always pick wacky colors and would love to dye it if it would accept dyes that they could use (it’s 100% polyester). My youngest begged me to make a REAL blanket – a blanket-sized blanket, not a kid-sized blanket. Foolishly, I agreed.
This project took way longer than it should have – mostly because it was too warm to knit unless it was very cold outside (and in the house). However, the recent Arctic Blast we’ve been experiencing was just the thing to finish this up!
