In 2017ish I decide to make a blanket for my son, who was a junior in high school at the time, using his school colors: blue and yellow. The project fizzled out for a couple reasons - the main one being that he was going to go to college at Michigan State University who’s school colors are GREEN and WHITE. Now MSUs biggest rival- UofM- has the school colors of blue and yellow. This is a very fierce and heated rival in our state. Knowing he wouldn’t take the blanket to school with him to avoid the harassment and ridicule he would most certainly endure if his schoolmates found out I gave upon it, packed it away and kinda forgot about it. A few years go by and I find out my BFF’s daughter is staring at UofM this fall. She didn’t have an open house but I wanted to give her something special. So I decided to finish it off and gift it to her knowing she would appreciate the colors and use it with pride.
(I added white for some contrast and to help fill out the blank. This pattern eats your yarn up!)
This is the card I watercolored for her. I used some metallic paint but it’s hard to see here.
Thanks for looking!
