Chronicles of Knitterly Misadventures

What to do, what to do?

Filed under: for T, Hemlock Ring Blanket | Tags: , ,

I have two skeins of Cascade Ecological Wool. That’s 950 yards of the second yummiest wool I’ve ever held in my hands.

It’s supposed to become the Hemlock Ring blanket for T, but I’m really tempted to scrap that idea and knit myself the Notre Dame Sweater from IK Summer, 2007 .

If I knit T a blanket he won’t be able to take care of it; his apartment is too small to lay out a blanket to dry after it’s been handwashed (which he won’t want to do), he probably won’t like the lace pattern anyway, and he’ll probably wind up spilling all kinds of unmentionable liquids on my lovely wool. But! He is my beloved, and in 3 years I’ve only knit him this pathetic little penguin, he was so impressed by the Swallowtail I knit for my mom, and can you imagine my beloved wrapped up at night in a blanket I knit for him? Doesn’t that just make you all warm and fuzzy inside? (or is that the wool?)
