A is for Alexander

ABCfinished

This is the project I’ve been working on most of the summer. I started it on the 3rd of July and finished it on August 18th. It was a secret for most of the summer as it was for a gift for a fellow knitter/crocheter who follows me on Ravelry, Instagram, etc…. so I barely posted any pictures of it, and when I did, it was in black & white and you couldn’t tell what I was working on. The pattern is the ABC Bobble Blanket by Gwen Antesberger. You can see my project on Ravelry here. I used a 6mm crochet hook with the Berroco Vintage yarn as I felt the 5mm hook was making it too tight for the project. The project used a lot of yarn… 2,008 meters, 10.12 skeins! I finally gave the gift to Alexander, so I finally can show you the project! I loved it so much, I almost didn’t want to give it away.

Absolutely gorgeous - I love it when you love a project so much you can barely give it away. Somehow means they are getting all that extra love :) I'm sure Alexander will have many cozy naps with his new blanket. Orley will love you for that!
