Yippee! Happy dance!! I am absolutely thrilled with my new travel blankie! I was waaaay overdue for a good looking security blanket. I finished my old one about five years ago and, no, I am not going to show it to you. It has become Xena’s security blanket.
The original inspiration was Shaimani’s Blanket by Rosi Garmendia. Since the original was a baby blanket, I added an extra repeat to make the blanket a bit wider. I used Wool of the Andes Worsted in the Indigo Heather colorway.
This photo of my wearing the blankie as a shawl shows the color much better. Since the evenings have been cool lately, I haven’t had to wait until our trip in May to enjoy my shawl. I’ve taken it with me to friends homes several times. It has a lovely drape yet it feels sturdy. When I sitting on a chair cross-legged, it covers me up. And, when I’m lounging with my feet up, it has the ideal length to serve as a blankie.
