The Blanket. It is done! College, bring it on, my girl has her blanket!
And it’s almost big enough for my queen bed! It actually will be perfect for her Extra Large Twin. The finished piece is 72″x50″ and the twin measures 80″x39″. It took 2654 yards to complete. I had less than 10 yards of grey left and 136 yards of red. I am sure I can use up the remainder for a hat for someone this winter. I haven’t gone up to College Bound’s room to see if she’s using it yet. Her room is quite cold in the summer and she usually sleeps well covered up.
I started the knitting on this in April, it lagged through the months, but I finally knuckled down and got it done! I was hoping to ring the blanket in I-Cord, but not enough yarn remaining. No biggee, it is fine as is.
Now to continue collecting the things she needs to set up her dorm room. In a few weeks head north to drop her off. And then bawl all the way home! Oh life transitions, how do we ever survive them.
