#45 and 46 – Autumn Fleeces

You never know quite what you’re getting when you buy a wrapped remnant. Fortunately, almost every time I’ve opened one I’ve found a flawless piece that I got at a bargain price. Yay!

But once in a while you discover a boo-boo, like a broad Bald streak on my golden yellow fleece! ugh.

At least the trimmed down piece still made a reasonably sized blanket, 38 x 50″. With the colors in the variegated edging it makes me think of gourds.

This bronze camo print reminds that some hunting season or other will be starting soon.

I thought the camo needed a simpler more masculine-looking edging than my usual so I just worked two dc in each hole for the first round and for the second round I did a *hdc in each of the next two dc, chain one while skipping the next dc, then repeat from the *. While going around the corners I alternated between doing that and putting both hdcs in the same dc.

Two more fleece blankets ready to warm foster children against chilly autumn nights.
