Better late than never!


It's better to have a late gift than no gift at all... right?!  I'm liking the way this doubleweave throw is turning out.  I like the 2/2 twill throughout the whole thing.  I think it will display this beautiful yarn in a nice way.  I remember now why I used this yarn as a weft instead of warp, and it's because it has a little bit of mohair in it.  It is washable, just on gentle.  The yarn also has some wool and acrylic in it.  I'm hoping it will make a nice warm blanket, but not too scratchy with the wool.  I have unwound the yarn from the skein in such a way that the color pattern will continue until I change skeins.  Hopefully it won't be too obvious!  I have no idea what to expect... and sometimes it's better that way!

Here's your daily dose of the little guy... he looks like such an old man in this picture!
