A SMALL POST FOR MY FRIEND KATY...


You had asked me what swedish weaving is...well....I do have a post somewhere on this blog, but not sure where....anyway, I have done several of these blankets...it's made with 2 yards of Monk's cloth and some varigated Red Heart yarn...and a needle...basically, you follow a pattern and weave the yarn in and out through the holes in the fabric and voila...you have your pattern! They are very cozy and warm blankets...and lots of fun to do. My cousin taught me about 1 1/2 years ago. This photo is my very first blanket, which is now in our family room.

Good night everyone!!
