My Free Patterns

The fan and feather is done!

This is going to be quick, as I'm headed out the door right after I finish typing.  Just yesterday I finished my fan and feather lap blanket.  Hurray!  It took me about a month and a half, and I didn't get bored.  That says a lot about a pattern that is just a four row repeat!

Stats
Pattern: Fan and Feather
Yarn: Mystery stash yarn.  Acrylic, but I'm ok with that.
For: My Grandparents.  I think it is the perfect size to use while sitting at the computer.  Might just have to make another one for myself.


I snapped some pictures this morning, then decided I needed a super cute, way-to-early-rising model:



I'm off work for three days starting tomorrow, so it is my goal to finish Isla's Tanvi cardigan and start two new projects.  I'm going to quickly order a new circular needle (or two) before I go!  Happy Crafting!!

    1. I WISH it would get hot. For whatever reason Mother Nature had turned her back on the Highlands this year. It hasn't been above 50F since March. Sigh.

  14. Andria--I love the fan design and really love the size and shape. I can't tell you how many times people in my house grab for a lap blanket while sitting around, talking or watching TV.
    (And you couldn't ask for a cuter model!) XXO-
