The final stages of the "Tree Breeze" Blanket
My daughter Michelle has been working on her knitted blanket for what seems an age. When I asked her this last weekend, she reckoned 3 maybe 3 1/2 years. Well it has been sat in her craft box waiting for an opportunity for me to help her decide the best way of sewing all the square blocks up. She didn't want to spoil it right at the very end.
The blanket itself has been knit in squares, 20 in total I think. She had used the "Tree Breeze" pattern out of Nicky Epstein's "Knitting Block By Block" book , taking her time knitting each block in the lovely Sublime yarn she had chosen.
This last weekend we got together and embarked on the sewing up project. She sat out in the garden, our lovely German Shepherd Dog Cain at her side.
It's not quite finished! , but when it is I'm sure I'll be showing yo the finished result.
