Good morning everyone! It's a beautiful morning to be awake! Today's post is all about my roommate, Miss Thea, coming to visit this weekend. To say I'm excited about her visit would be a gross understatement.
I don't know if you all know this about me, but I love making gifts. Recently, Thea has been the benefitiary of many things that I've made. The first thing being a cool Harry Potter themed tray. I am proud of it because of the tiny sleeping dragon it has on it :)
The other thing I've been working on for her is an afghan. I've never knitted or crocheted an afghan before so I wasn't sure how this would go. My great grandmother crocheted many afghans so I took a close look at one of the ones she made and did my best to come up with a similar pattern.
Thea's blanket is made to fit an extra long twin because that is the bed size we have when we're in college. It's surprisingly warm and soft, I can say that for sure because it's sitting on my lap as I type. :)
It took me just under 3 months to complete and in that time it's traveled many places with me! Martha's Vineyard, white water rafting, etc! Hopefully she likes it as much as I do.
So that's it for this week! See you all soon!
