The story starts with my 27th birthday. No further back than that. I had a work friend that introduced me to his girlfriend. We hung out a bunch. Then she was in my wedding and I was in hers then she got pregnant. In about a 6 year span.
It is traditional grannies, 9 high and 7 wide. 4.5 inches each. Right at crib size. Sc-ed together. I used With Love by Red Heart and a G hook. I’d say it took about 12 to 15 hours. I washed it before packing, and its a good thing I did because a few middles came unraveled. So I sewed em back up and reinforced all of the middles. Meaning, I sewed in a length of yarn in the centers. Just around the center 2 or 3 times. It will make it much stronger. The washing made the blanket VERY soft.
As for the cat. I saw him in a book at Joann’s and I just couldn’t pass him up. He’s a traditional Japanese cat named Amineko.
All ready to go to his new home.
