A friend of ours’ dad has cancer. Apparently he likes blankets, and his son is fascinated by handspun yarn. So, I’m knitting him a throw. It is NOT all handspun, however. I didn’t have enough of the right colors available, and plus, most of my handspun is wool–which, I guess, is not so good for people having all those chemo and radiation treatments. I’m a little over half done, I think. This is what I have so far:
About half of the white/cream areas are superwash wool handspun. The rest of it is machine washable–mostly acrylic. I am all out of the splotchy blue yarn (LB “Mystery”) and have to get creative to finish the rest–right now I have 3 different #15 circular needles working and holding stitches while I add to it in various directions. I don’t much like casting off and picking up–I keep as many edges live as possible, lol. This is based on the Mason Dixon Log Cabin Moderne things.
