Baby Blues

Our new Grandson has fast out grown the yellow and white double weave blanket I made for his homecoming in September.  Went through my stash and found some very nice 5/2 mercerized yarn in a great shade of baby blue and snow white.

Warped the yarns up, threw them on the loom and wove the blanket off.  Took me a grand total of two days from start to finish.  Weaving the blanket made me realize how much I dislike standing the whole time so that I can thrown and catch the shuttle across the width of my loom.   Ah well, it is a very small price to pay to weave something for our new little guy.

My weaving studio supervisors, Sam and Pepper.

Happy Weaving.
