So, you know the Woven Stitch I talked about last week? Well. I worked up a nice big square of woven stitch in big squishy Biggo yarn. It measures about 2 and a half by 3 feet. It’s thick and squishy and warm and lovely. And it was going to be a fantastic new bathmat for the guest bathroom.
But Ollie had a different idea.
(These are the best pictures I could get with him wiggling around and carrying his blanket around the house.)
So, it looks like Ollie has a new blanket. (How could you say no to that face?) Whoops!
***OH! And the Twist and Tweed giveaway has been extended until Wednesday! Be sure to comment here to enter!***
Phew! I made it just in the nick of time! Grandma’s sweater is done! And it’s awesome! (And that’s a lot of exclamation points!)
I finished the sweater with exactly 52 inches of blue yarn left. It was a nail-biter, let me tell you. (I’m all about reducing waste, but this was ridiculous.)
But all’s well that ends well, right? The sweater has turned out beautifully! The Biggo yarn I used blocked up wonderfully. And, I’m so glad I made the change from dark gray to light. It turned out so much better than it would have otherwise.
I even found the perfect buttons! They’re bright pink, to match the snowflakes, and just a tiny bit sparkly (the photos don’t do them justice). I drove all over Seattle looking for them, and, when I found them, I thoroughly freaked out the clerk who helped me find them by doing a little happy dance. It was exciting, what can I say?
Now I just have to wait and see if it fits! Cross your fingers for me!
