This project has been in my bag all summer. I have learned that once your child gets into high school, there truly is no time off in the summer. There are many practices to wait for along with waiting rooms for dentists, doctors and ophthalmologists. Working with yarn is what I do while waiting.
I followed this simple pattern by AnneM.
I apologize for the pictures. We have just moved and the camera is packed in a box somewhere, but the iPhone does an okay job. I think I struggle to hold my hand as still as I necessary. I will try to take much better photographs before shipping this fun blanket to my sweet cousin, Zachary.
I used I Love This Yarn in Black, Royal, and Red. It's the perfect size for a young boy who loves superheros. It was an interesting project for me as I was working with colors and a color combination I am not usually drawn to. Every time I picked it up I was reminded that we sometimes work outside our own preferences to make gifts that the recipients will love.
