At my 27th birthday the work friend, not the girlfriend, wore a shirt that was an equalizer that actually worked. I had a rave themed party complete with black lights, a DJ and me in yarn falls and a tutu. It. Was. A. Total. Blast.
As not "normals" I had to come up with something great for their offspring. This came to me.
It is traditional grannies, 9 high and 7 wide. 4.5 inches each. Right at crib size. Sc-ed together. I used With Love by Red Heart and a G hook. I'd say it took about 12 to 15 hours. I washed it before packing, and its a good thing I did because a few middles came unraveled. So I sewed em back up and reinforced all of the middles. Meaning, I sewed in a length of yarn in the centers. Just around the center 2 or 3 times. It will make it much stronger. The washing made the blanket VERY soft.
As for the cat. I saw him in a book at Joann's and I just couldn't pass him up. He's a traditional Japanese cat named Amineko.
All ready to go to his new home.
I LOVE making things for kids. I feel like it's the best reason, to create something soft for someone you love. This child is the child of two people that I love and respect like, if not more than some, family. <3
