Met with Approval.

approval 1

I think we can safely say that Toile has taken to the blanket in a big way. approval 2

Every time she has gone quiet I have found her sprawled out on it.  As she is the only one that has witnessed string being made into fabric, I wonder what she has thought of that process.  Whatever it is, she is a happy girl with the outcome. approval 3

And I think we can also safely say, that her owner is in love with it too.  I love, love, love it. approval 4

It is everything I want it to be and more.  Next time I get the sewing machine out I will make a tag to sew onto it with my name and date.  You never know, in fifty years you might find it in a retro thrift shop and someone might resurrect it and patch and wash it and throw it over old sofas with love and other pussy cats might come along and notice the warmth of the wool on their paws and fall in love too.  And they will always wonder who mandycharlie was, maybe I’ll put a link to the blog, that would be a modern twist on finding a retro blanket.

And for those with more of an eye for the pattern, this was made from Rowan Purelife Home, called Granny Squares Throw by Marie Wallin in yarn Rowan Renew.   I used two more balls than called for in Trailor 681 and some of the others were short by a ball, but I simply can’t remember which ones, and I crocheted with a 5.00 mm crochet hook.
