My friend Bethany tagged me for this game:


You're supposed to do the following:
1. Open the 4th picture folder on your computer
2. Open the 4th picture and post it on your blog.
3. Explain the picture.
4. Tag 4 people to do the same!

This is a picture of the Beaches Blanket I designed and knitted last year. It is worked in mitered blocks, all garter stitch. The yarn is wool from my stash I chose because the various skeins worked together to make a blanket that reminds me of the beach--sand, white foam on the waves, shells, pebbles. The base yarn is the cream colored black and grey flecked wool a friend brought me from Scotland. This afghan is my favorite, and I was snuggled up in it last night while we watched an episode of Foyle's War. The Professor was using it and I grabbed it from him and gave him another one I had knitted for him several years ago. I have to say that this photo is not a great one; it didn't make the original cut for lighting or composition to be named and edited in any way. But here it is: Willow's basic photography.

Four people to tag:

1. Flower

2. Ellen

3. Melialissa

4. Marg

This little tag was quick and fun to do! Enjoy!

very pretty snuggly blanket. I like the way each yarn reminds you of something in nature.

Thanks Willow for tagging me. It's simple and I can handle this one with ease. It is so coincidental!
