(almost) FO: hap blanket.

I’m on a roll. Yesterday, between writing the first paragraph of something that will be a draft of the first chapter of my dissertation (yay!), and attending a colloquium on campus, I bound off the hap blanket I started months ago as a wedding present for C and A, who got married at the end of November. I’m so happy with how this turned out. I even cuddled with it while watching Colbert!

I’m really happy with the size, pre-blocking, and I bet I’ll get another inch or so in length and width when I block out the feather and fan border. All that remains is to weave in the ends and give it a soak — which means, C and A, you should have it before it gets too hot in Florida…

No actual knits in this picture, but I snapped this because I’m wearing my new pashmina, which was the gift all of the bridesmaids received at M’s wedding last weekend. The color is lovely and surprisingly versatile, and the shawl is so soft.

And here’s my silly dog again. His friend Tango came over last night after I got home from campus, which meant he slept very deeply, and did not want to get out of bed this morning. Instead, he wanted a belly rub. I know, Boh. TGIF.

Time to get to work. Happy Friday to you!

  2. Ooh, the hap blanket is beautiful! Love the neutral colors, and it looks like it came out a good size.

    So exciting to kick off a big writing project! Best of luck. Oh Boh… always a cutie.

  3. The hap blanket looks awesome–perfect for squooshing and snuggling. As for the dissertation, victory will be yours! The journey of a thousand miles, after all …

    And, Boh I feel you.

  4. Ooooh, that’s beautiful! I love the grey and black combo…it gives a modern look to the traditional pattern.

    What a pretty pashmina, too!
