The Life & Whimsies of Knitty Lou

Alicia’s Blanket

Posted on: July 7, 2011

This is my favorite project I have ever worked on. When my friend Alicia said that her and her family were moving to Santiago, Chile, Laura and I immediately decided to knit something for her. We wanted a patchwork throw made up of tons of different patterns and yarns. At least for myself, I purposely used yarn and patterns from projects that I have done, as kind of a reminder of all that we have done during our friendship. We gave it to her on the last night that she could attend our knitting group before her move. Needless to say, it was very emotional and the gift could not have possibly been better received.

This is one of the most lovely gifts I have ever received.
It was invaluable when we arrived in Santiago at the end of winter and had no heat!
Every time I wrap myself in this beautiful blanket I feel like I am getting a big hug from all the wonderful women who helped create it.
This blanket to me is tangible evidence of my dear friends’ love and support.
What a lucky woman I am!

Ooooooohhhhhh! You made me get all teary. I luv ya bunches!!
