Happy New Year! It is a beautiful snowy day outside, and I'm starting the new year celebrating. A blanket long overdue for dear friends is finally done! Hooray! The top is made from a combination of felted and non-felted wool sweaters, and the back is a soft brushed cotton.
It's their wedding gift, made to reflect their love of climbing....grey::bedrock, brown::soil, green::grass, more greys::mountains, blue::sky. The red thread at the bottom is the thread that binds two together. I once heard of a belief that when two future loves are born, they each are bound at the waist with a thread that connects them, no matter how far apart they are. As time goes on, the thread becomes shorter and shorter and finally draws them together.
I hope the New Year finds you drawing close to those you love.
