My sister's blanket is nearly finished. I have the ends to weave. She isn't one for fringe, so I won't be doing that. Seems I should do something. Maybe crochet a border? Maybe put 4 big tassells on the four corners. Any ideas?
It is big and drapey and very soft.
The yarn is SMART superwash. Made by: SandnesGarn. The Pattern is the Cape Cod Shawl from the Prayer Shawl Companion book. Easy peasy 3x3 ribs on big needles. The cost of the project, around 130.00.
My sister bought the yarn. I tried to talk her into something less costly, but she was set on getting the yarn then and there. It is really going to be a snuggly soft blanket for her.
Besides the finishing ,there is the transport to Minnesota costs. Any ideas for cost - saving here? I may have to wait until someone is driving up to see her, to get it there. I imagine cost will be pretty pricey whether USPS or UPS or Fed Ex. Hmmmm. Thoughts? Ideas???
THANKS. ( I will be announcing a contest sometime soon...stay tuned! I just have to figure out
the simple details. ) Happy Weekend to you all. Enjoy . Here's to sunshine
