I don’t remember what I’ve said about this project, but it’s a lap blanket for one of my grandmothers, for when she’s in her wheelchair. The yarn, Berroco Ultra Alpaca, is super-soft and squishy. I’m having lots of fun working with it.
I knit most of the squares during our large cross-country drive. Boston to Williamsburg and then across to our new home on the Monterey Peninsula, which I have to say I’m completely loving so far. The fog, the cool temperatures, the gorgeous beach a half-mile from the house we’re renting… all are topping my favorites list right now. (And come on–a locale with temps between 50 and 70 year-round? Knitters’ heaven!!)
