Yarn in my Travels

Sunrise in Italy Knit Blanket

In April 2013, I traveled to Italy for my first visit.  In my travels, I discovered 3 yarn shops.  This blanket incorporates the yarn that I purchased in a small shop outside of Parma.  In this post, I discuss my visit and this yarn find.  Here’s Sunrise in Italy

The center of each of these 15 inch log cabin squares is the Adriafil New Zealand Print yarn that I purchased that day.

The blanket consists of 12 squares.  I complimented the center souvenir yarn with Berroco Vintage yarn picking up the cream, rose, and blue in the center yarn.  The final outer edge is a color called Blue Moon, a deep blue green that outlines each square.  Sewing them together 4 squares in length and 3 squares across, the finished size is approximately 45 inches wide and 60 inches long.  I still have to weave in the ends.

My new lounge chair in my new sunroom is the ideal place for this blanket.  I expect to take my early morning coffee out there and enjoy it wrapped in my blanket.  When the blanket is not in use, I have it in a zippered vinyl bag to keep in clean and free from the early morning dampness.

Now to find a nice colorful outdoor rug to complete this spot.

Do you have a favorite spot to relax, knit, read, or maybe just be still for a little while?
