This is project I made about 6 years ago, but I wasn’t on Cster anymore, so I figure I’ll post it here so people can see it!
So the backstory is that my friend’s dog, Oakley had passed in his sleep at the age of 15. He had been her companion since before her marriage, through miscarriages, and after the birth of her only daughter. She was heartbroken at having to say goodbye to him. I approached a group of mutual friends and asked if they would like to chip in for a present for her – if they could help me pay for yarn and shipping, I would make this blanket and send it to her as a gift from all of us.
I used Caron Simply Soft, which gave it a nice drape and sheen and J Tunisian hook. I did some sneaky FB stalking and found a cute picture of Oakley wearing a party hat to recreate. I can’t remember the online program I used to convert the picture into pixels. It had a weird name.
In progress… looks kind of weird and abstract. And yarn tails galore!
All done with a border!
