Serenity is blocked and ready for gifting...

I had hoped to have this ready for the Friday-after-Thanksgiving post but I just couldn't get to it. Sorry for the delay, I hope it is worth the wait...

Pattern: Serenity Blanket
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash, 5 skeins
Needle:  US 7

(click on the photos to make them bigger if you'd like)






The photo at the top shows the best representation of the color of the blanket. It's tough to get a good pic in the winter.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday everyone! If you'd like to see more pretty handmade things jump over to Wisdom Begins In Wonder and check out the folks that participate in the blog circus there.

If you have some extra good juju laying around could you please send it this way. Our little grand-dog Winston was diagnosed with lymphoma yesterday and we're all hoping for some kind of a miracle for him. Thanks for any thoughts you could send his way. We all love him very much.
Thank you for stopping by. Hope you all have a great weekend.

The blanket is gorgeous!

I hope Winston will be ok. We lost a young alpaca to Lymphoma almost a year ago. It was heartbreaking. :-(

Ally--Serenity is absolutely lovely!! It's so much fun to see how blocking makes the designs just 'pop'!
(Love your new banner, too!)

Your Serenity is so beautiful! I'm very tempted to make one, but would so dread the hundreds-stitches cast off.

Our good wishes for little Winston, it's so hard to watch our babies being sick.

Sorry about the puppy dog. I hope he will be okay, dogs are so much a part of our families.
