Anniversary Blanket

8 Jun

My younger sister got married a year ago, so I needed something to celebrate her anniversary. So I’ve been working on a crocheted blanket for a while and she was the recipient the entire time, the event for giving just changed. They are moving in August and I thought a nice blanket would be a good gift because they could take it with them.Β  (They only get to take a limited about of stuff)

Here is Amber and her husband Jay.

They are pretty cute. They also have a pretty cool blog about community which is why they are moving in August. Community, not the blog.

So here is the blanket I made them:

I really planned it for their living room, but it looks great on their bed. And I just picked the colors because I thought they would like them, but they match so well.

The squares of color are giant granny squares and then I just double crocheted them together. I was impressed at how fast it really came together. It didn’t take me nearly as long as I expected. They seem to like it pretty well, and it is surprisingly warm. With all those holes I thought it might be kind of light but when I was finishing it up, I noticed how warm it was. Esp since it was like 90 degrees outside. πŸ™‚ Now you want to be friends with me don’t you? So you can get cool presents too.

    Thanks for the gift! We love it! πŸ™‚ Everything about it is perfect for us, the colors, the size, the craftsmanship, which makes it pretty much the best blanket ever.

    Nope, that’s not an overstatement. He is right. Best blanket ever for sure.
