I am still, as ever, obsessed with blanket making, even though it is summer. We have had some unseasonably cool weather lately, which has given me some extra time to work on these warm projects. This is very awesome, both for working on blankets and for my electric bill; I have had my A/C turned off for almost a week now. I am hoping that it lasts a bit longer so that I can finish the blanket I am making for my cousin’s daughter before she heads off to college, but that is a story for another post.
This post is about the blanket I finished this weekend:
Isn’t it great (if I do say so myself)? This v-stitch pattern is so quick and pretty. It is surprisingly warm, too–I found myself getting too warm when I used to to cover my legs in a cold movie theater. I did have a sweater on, but I was surprised that it made such a big difference.
I tried to work on small gift items while it is hot, and I did get some done, but I just love making blankets so much. Anyone else making blankets in the summer heat?
