This past weekend I ran up a blanket for our sitting room. Yes. Another one.
What do you mean ‘there’s no room for another’? Sure there is … see that teeny gap at the top? Plenty big enough.
In many ways this is the perfect blanket. It is true we have plenty to choose from, but not for no reason did I call this the ‘Goldilocks’ blanket. Some of our blankets are too big, some are too small. Some blankets are too heavy, and some are too light. Some are too lumpy and some, well some I just plain do not like. This one is juuuuust right; big enough, warm enough, light enough, and in my opinion, pretty enough for our sitting room.
It was a simple enough blanket to make, being just a blanket, not a quilt, with therefore no batting to battle with and no bias to sew. After the cutting it was a couple of hours of work beginning to end. An easy sew.
The result is a blanket that fits right at home with this room it was purposely made for, and the pattern and tutorial is one that will be in the winter edition of Seasonal Living & Learning. Until then, I’m sure you’re going to be seeing a lot more of this blanket around this blog in the future months.
