It's a soft, fleecy, chunky yarn that, frankly, is a pain in the neck to knit. It's tough pulling through the stitches and you really can't get up to any speed knitting with it. I don't know if they even manufacture it anymore. Still, it makes this wonderful light fabric, so that's what I used.
See how soft and squishy it is? Perfect for a light baby blanket. Now, jump ahead five years and this is what it looks like today.
A stringy, tattered, holey, but well loved, mess! As you can see, Mickey loves it and won't part with it, even with the offer of a brand new one! He just tells me it's his and he's fine with it, so I am too. After all, isn't this the reason we all knit in the first place?
I totally understand. I knitted a baby blanket for my friends baby years ago. The poor blanket has been so well loved but the little girl who is now 16 refuses to give it up. Nothing could make me happier!!
Haha! That is great!
Our knitted gifts should all be that loved!!!! So precious!
That is the MOST loved blanket I think I've ever seen!
Awww, what a sweet boy he is!
