Seaweed

742 SWD-full

No, my feelings for this blanket didn’t influence my choice of name at all. . . Why would you ask such a thing? lol.

So happy that I don’t have to pretend to loooove every one of my blankets!

Every now and then I’ve forced myself to work outside of my color-combo comfort zone. Maybe I went too far this time. – As I worked I thought that although it didn’t look great, it was at least OK. Yet when I laid it out flat, I nearly winced. – It seems appropriate to pull out my old maxim, “Just because I don’t love it, doesn’t mean no one else will.”. . . Feel free to fantasize along with me now about a little foster child whose eyes light up at the sight of “Seaweed”!

Used nearly an entire skein of RHSS ‘Aruba Sea’ and 2 full skeins of Vanna’s Choice ‘Olive’, all from Lisa of TN, about 2 skeins of Sayelle ‘Off-White’ from Sandi of MD and almost all the Antique Gold chenille that remained from a thrift shop sweater DH and I unraveled a looong time ago.

    Yes, someone will love this. The gold chenille’s rich texture completes it. In fact, both a friend of mine and one of my sisters would LOVE it.
    Staying in our comfort zones we would miss all those who have color preferences different from our own. Examples such as this blanket help us, your readers, to also stretch beyond our preferences. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Sometimes its good to work outside our comfort zone. Those colors look really good together. I wouldn’t choose those colors for myself, but not everyone likes the colors that I do choose. Good job. I like the name because the colors do remind me of the ocean.
