I wanted to make something for DH to take on the ship with him (he’s in the navy). I figured a blanket would be nice, that way when he’s away from me, he can be wrapped up in something I made. Here were his requests: he wanted it really large, he wanted it in Dallas Cowboy colors (although after what Romo did, I’m sure he’s regretting that one), and he wanted it simple.
I decided to do it in alternating garter and stockinette stripes. It’s double-stranded on size 13 needles. It took about 20 skeins of Caron Simply Soft. Not the best yarn, but I figured it’ll stand up to being on the ship. I had a bunch of other projects going so it took me about 4 months to complete it. I’m so happy though, now I have NO projects OTN and can start making something for myself.
