Ahhh, spring break. I woke up, voluntarily, at 7am and got to work. Lookie what I finally (started and) finished!
A cover for our wool comforter! It’s a monster – the finished size was 91″ x 104″. Wheew!
A vendor at the local farmer’s market sells these wonderful wool comforters. I had been oogling them for some time. As a wedding present Mr. Sweetness himself bought one for me us. What’s that? I got hitched a year and a half ago? Yes, yes, it’s true. I should have done this ages ago. But my sewing machine was broken or I didn’t have the fabric or I didn’t have the time or I didn’t have the snap press.
Speaking of snap press. Check out those snaps! Aren’t they awesome? You might have to play a little “Where’s Waldo” to find the white cover on the brown print. But it’s there, I promise!
The comforter now adds a lovely splash of color to the bedroom, and I no longer have to worry about the naked comforter getting (anymore) dingy.
And, much to my relief, I finally finished The Chalice Blanket.
This knitting project pretty much spanned the winter.
I’m forgetting the finished size, but it’s big enough for a twin bed. In our house it will live on the couch. It’s long enough for P and I to share while watching a movie, but not so wide that it gets in the way.
The pattern is just bold enough to stand out amongst the yarn’s variegations.
But simple enough to suit my tastes.
Did I mention how soft and cozy it is? How much warmth it provides without being overbearing? It’s perfect.
