A Wool Blanket in its New Home
This Cariboo Handwoven wool blanket was purchased last week as a special birthday gift. The giver and the recipient are sisters and both are friends of mine. About half of the wool is handspun Shetland, the dark brown going across. This is a sturdy, warm blanket and I've already heard it's being enjoyed and well-used. It has a nice backdrop of the Gatineau woods in Quebec here in its new home:
I'm always delighted to hear how suitable a new blanket or towel is for its owner - that's a big part of the joy and fulfillment of creating anything. And this blanket will last for many, many years.
