Hugs from Mom

                                        


This is a blanket I made for my oldest daughter when she went to college. I wanted her to be able to cover up and feel hugged by me at the same time. The pattern was from Prouse, Leanne. Knitting at Home: 60 Classics from Ella Rae Designs. New York: Sixth & Spring, 2010. Print. The pattern was the Cable & Garter Stitch Throw on page 52. I used Wool of the Andes Superwash Amethyst Heather from www.knitpicks.com. I loved knitting it and found it easy to remember the pattern without the instructions by keeping two stitch counters on it for the two different cable patterns and stitch markers separating them so I didn't have to count. It was my favorite travel project. I am very happy with the warmth and softness of the yarn. Everyone loves the color!
