Weeks after we wrapped up the TFA Blanket KAL I'm finally getting around to blogging my personal blanket project contribution! This is the way with blankets, I'm all gung ho in the beginning and can whip off multiple squares like it's nobody's business. Then comes the seaming... then the border... then the weaving in of ends... Sometimes I fly through the whole process and other times I get caught up on one of the later steps. This time it was the border. My blanket just sat there, seamed together with ends mostly sewn in for a few weeks and then one night I said "enough!" and picked up the stitches, started on the border and within a few days the project was officially off the needles, ready for cuddling and peek-a-boo and all that good stuff!
As always, I can't say enough good things about the Fly Away blanket pattern by Tin Can Knits. This is my third and I can guarantee that there will be a fourth! Each one is completely different from the last. My heart could explode I love this pattern so! This colour palette is quite a departure for me. Though I'm obviously no stranger to the blue/turquoise tones I rarely opt for orange as a complement, it's just so much contrast and my gradient loving heart usually sticks with something a bit more subtle. But I love it! It's bright and fun and playful and I have no regrets.
We're planning a PureWash Etsy update for later this week, possibly as early as Friday! My hope is to have Etsy updates every 2 weeks or so, doing our darnedest to keep the shop stocked throughout the fall.
