so, the weather in Fairbanks has finally turned nice (just in time for Fall!) so i'm taking advantage of the warm sun and my large deck to block a few things that have been hanging around waiting for the rain to stop.
a blanket for newly married friends...they don't know they're the recipients so they shall remain nameless for now...
this is made from an absolutely lovely merino-cashmere-silk mix by Kathmandu Yarns in a deeply complex straw color - full of grey-sage, off white, and yellow flecks. i never tired of the color and that means a lot when you've spent months of your life with it. this blanket measures 6'x6' and was knit in one big piece.
oh, and the vest...it's coming along. the pattern's still a pain, but here's the front blocking. i can tell already that the arm holes aren't big enough, so we'll be fixing that tonight.
