A Blanket For A Bean

With the Bean's due date coming up faster than I can get a grip on, I'm running low on time for handspun and handknit projects before the baby is here! So, I've stepped away from the computer (and the dishes, and the laundry, and tidying up in general. Yes. I'm the worst.) to work away at the wheel to spin up some special yarn for the baby's first blanket.

I still have a bit to go before the yarn is done but here is a little peek at what I've been up to.

If it looks insanely soft and squishy, oh that's because it is. So unbelievably soft.

The wool braid is a merino/tencel blend and it is a dream to spin. I normally would process and dye my own but I wanted splash out a bit and buy something really decadent and baby soft.

It was so worth it.

The wool was purchased from The Yarn Chef on Etsy. Do yourself a favor and also check out her hand dyed yarn shop.

    @Jen: Same! I love greens and blues. I never can seem to get away from them.
