As promised I have a Finished Object to show y’all!!!
A finished Tiramisu Blanket for Kathryn’s Dance Teacher. Miss Cherita is due with a baby girl in just a few weeks. I originally planned to have this blanket finished so Kat could give it to her on her last class day. However their last class was a week prior to what I thought it was.
I started the blanket at Kathryn’s Dress Rehearsal for her recital on May 2nd. I completed the blanket Thursday before last on May 22. There were a quite a few days in there where I didn’t touch the blanket at all. So I was really happy with how quickly I finished it.
This is my modified version of Alica’s Tiramisu Blanket. Modified because I can’t follow directions and check my gauge for nothing. So the blanket turned out too small and I had to add on extra rows of sc edging. It might have started as a mistake the first time I made one of these blankets, but now I am quite fond of the end result.
I found the ribbon at Michael’s when I bought the yarn. The yarn is Lily Sugar n Cream Confectionary Colors. I love this stuff! They have the best colors! This blanket is done in Pistachio and took right at a skein and a half. I plan to use the left over yarn for some baby bibs in the future.
Yes I am very happy with this blanket.
The very same day I finished the green blanket I started on my next project. I can’t really share too many details on here because it is a gift and the person it is for might read my blog. So if you are on ravelry you can see what it is on my projects page (I’m caednkat there). Otherwise I will share a finished picture after the person receives it. I can share a close up sneak peak though…
Also I have decided to start sharing our Friday Movie Night adventures on Sundays. Hopefully it will be a regular thing. So look for that post tomorrow!!
