It looks exactly right for a young man! It turned out lovely. I like Marbles yarn, might even try the chunky version some day.


It looks so tranquil, I know it will bring peace and comfort. So, the ends are braided? Like a hair braid?


It turned out great. I agree with the braiding as you go. On the baby blanket in Mission 1824, I had a few not-so-nice verbal outbursts. I would definitely along the way next time.

Beautiful blanket.

But I actually am writing for the pattern of the herringbone rib scarf.
Thank you.

What a wonderful comfort. Did you use those humongous balls or the smaller balls of Marble? I have seen them on Ravelry for Lady Eleanor, but I think you'd have to change her name to something less elegant, like Madge or Gladys.


Knowing these folks or not, I know they will be touched by the fact that someone would spend that amount of time and compassion thinking of them. Sometimes those unexpected bits of love from strangers can have the greatest effect. And it looks lovely to boot! Nice work.


Hi there! I wandered onto your blog to request the Herringbone Rib Scarf pattern, but wanted to tell you how impressed I am with your work. You are quite talented.. :) I'd also love some input - I browsed your profile and see that you used to live in Nebraska. I am a born & raised Washington girl (down to my webbed toes) who currently lives in Atlanta, but is planning on moving to Omaha this summer. Any advise or reflections you'd care to share?? Would be delighted to hear from you!


I just love that blanket, it reminds me of a very comfortable blanket tha tyou wrap up in a cold day. I'm sure it will bring much comfort to its recipient.


Beautiful blanket and a very thoughtful gesture.
