This is a project that I haven’t talked about in nearly half a year. The last post I did was back in June I believe. The knitting was all done and it just needed to be washed and block. However the recipients were no longer in Thailand, but heading to Tanzania, Africa. I don’t think they needed a wool blanket it Tanzania so I held on to it a bit longer. It layed in the FO pile finished, but unblocked.
This week they came up for a visit since they are back in the states looking for more permanent work. I washed and blocked the blanket out on my spare bed rather creatively and LOVE the finished result.
While the photo doesn’t really do it justice, it is nice to have it completely done! They loved it and will definitely use it once they get settled in. My whole house smelled like wet wool for at least 3 days while this beast was drying.
