Character, my blanket has character...



Last night I finally finished the blanket that I've been working on. It was going to be a gift for my sister but it turned out to have many, many issues. There is no straight edge where the squares line up on the outside, several holes here and there, and then there is one square where I ran out of yarn but the new yarn dye didn't quite match up. Some would say that it has a lot of character. I guess it was a good learning experience. It now lives here on the back of the couch under this painting that I painted 3 years ago.

I completely love how the blanket ties into the picture! I never put it together that they would compliment each other so well - way awesome! And I've seen your "character" filled blanket....you don't give yourself enough credit. It looks great!
