Spring Throw Finished!

Kirstin here with an update on that blanket I was working on. I think it’s finally finished, and just in time. It’s supposed to be in the 90s next week. Crocheting an alpaca blanket in that weather, in my NOT air conditioned house, would be terrible.

Even though each of the strips came out a different length, sometimes as much as 3 or 4 inches, it doesn’t show (much) in the finished product. As usual, I’m ambivalent about how it turned it out. The yarn is very soft, but it doesn’t have any memory. It’s…floppy? Droopy. Kind of…fwahh. You can tell by looking edges of the blanket. They are a bit longer than the middle, even though I deliberately put the shorter strips on the outside.


It’s beautiful, but I may try different yarn next time I make a blanket.

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.

    No it’s just right. I love floppy soft blankets. What could be nicer. The pattern is intriguing – please post instructions? and the colours work very well.

    • Thanks! It’s always such a trial to choose the right colors and work out the gauge. I like the fluffiness of the white, particularly. I’ll post the pattern when I get a chance. I’ve modified the original quite a bit (this is second or third time I’ve done this pattern).

  2. It’s lovely – I like it just the way it is! =)
