Tweedy Feather and Fan Blanket
As promised, here are the photos of the never-ending blanket that has ended! I need a ticker tape parade (hopefully you all know what that is). I enjoyed the beginning and the end of the blanket and the middle was taking forever. I am taking a break from blanket knitting until the fall.
The yarn is wool-ease which is hard on my hands. The pattern is Old Faithful - feather and fan stitch which I've mentioned before reminds me of my mother who loved this pattern and made this as baby blankets for many babies in her lifetime.
What are you working on this week?
Well done! It is perfect, Karen! A cozy addition to your sofa! :)ReplyDelete
That is really pretty and it looks so soft! I'm working (still) on the Guernsey Wrap and the Hiking Trail sock.ReplyDelete
Feather and Fan is my favorite and your blanket is lovely. The slog was worth it!ReplyDelete
That turned out very nice. You'll be loving it with next fall's cool weather!ReplyDelete
Do they still do ticker tape parades????
It turned out beautiful. Feather and fan is such a classic pattern. Never goes out of style. I do know what a ticker tape parade is. Does this make me old?ReplyDelete

That blanket looks right at home on your couch. Feather and fan is a beautiful classic. That it reminds you of your mother makes it extra special. Happy Mother's Day.ReplyDelete
What a pretty blanket! I just love the feather and fan stitch.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Congrats on the finish :-D.ReplyDelete
Well done, and it's gorgeous ! Obviously I'd never heard of a ticker tape parade ( maybe due to me not being American ? ), but thank google. Too bad I don't live near; I'd have been happy to come around with my paper shreds of course ;-)ReplyDelete

It's beautiful Karen, a work of art and definitely a labour of love. I think all my blankets have taken forever. I get restless and wish do other things, the longer I dally the longer it takes. If I focused it'd probably be done in a couple of months. CxReplyDelete
What a beautiful blanket! A wonderful baby gift to cherish for many years.ReplyDelete
It is stunning, such a beautiful make.ReplyDelete
Your blanket came out wonderful! It's squishy and will be easy to clean. I will be making cookies that will serve as my grandmother's birthday gift and I will also be making cupcakes for her birthday luncheon. I want to try to pipe different flowers on each cupcake in pastel colors.ReplyDelete
