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. (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. 🙂 Now you want to be friends with me don’t you? So you can get cool presents too.
