I have finished my colorful bobble blanket, using all 17 skeins of my yarn from England. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed doing this afghan! From the first stitch, I was in love. Craving scones and tea, the whole while I worked on it. Dreaming of visiting this country that I have so loved to read about. And because my friend Kate names her blankets, each and every one of them, I decided that I should too. My first one was made for my Mom. Mountain Mama is what I named that blanket. It was made in the colors of our much loved Big Bear Mountains. And I thought she would keep it in her cabin. But she has chosen to keep it at her house so that she can use it more often.
And this bobble, with the British yarn.....that I worked on, and nearly finished as I was watching the Queen's Jubilee celebration, has been aptly named. I am calling it JUBILEE!!
Back to the Jubilee Afghan.....I LOVE it. ADORE it! I can't possibly part with it. I don't have a single thing in my house that it will go with. I love these colors, but the only ones even remotely like them, are in my sewing room. So this is where Jubilee will reside.
Aside from being thrilled with this afghan, I am also very happy to report that today was a turnaround day for me. I noticed a substantial improvement in the way I feel!!! I thought I was going to be headed back to the Dr. tomorrow. But I think I have turned the corner, and am kicking this awful bug once and for all!!!!
I am off to bed, but I HAD to share my Jubilee!!!!!
