WIP Wednesday: Refreshing Throw – Almost Done!
The point on this WIP Wednesday is twofold. First, to exclaim from the mountain tops that after weaving in the ends I am DONE with the Refreshing Throw!
And second, to show the world the amazing basket I scored at Goodwill!! At 24″ in diameter, it’s a beauty. I have been patiently stalking my local Goodwill for just the right basket, and I think it paid off.
I didn’t anticipate how long this blanket was going to take. Each motif took 30 minutes, and there are 36 squares. Then the arranging, joining and border. It clocks in around 23 hours.
So far, I have been making my baby blankets 36″x36″. I’m coming to realize that this might be an overly generous size and could make this just as nice at 30″x30″. This would make it 25 squares at my gauge instead, cutting down production time by 5.5 hours!
I love the motif design, it is really pretty and I would gladly make this again.
Would you love this blanket for your little one? Contact me for commission work.
