In this post, I mentioned the blanket that Meghan (of Allergic to Wool) and I were making for a badly injured friend. Ultimately our friend passed away before we could finish it, but the blanket is now complete and ready to be given to her Mother. Meghan and I knit our halves from across the Atlantic, so there are slight differences between them, but I think it makes the blanket more charming. At this moment, it’s pinned down for a final blocking, but I took a few photos outside earlier:

The blanket was knit with this pattern. Meghan’s half is raveled here, while mine is raveled here.

Knitting this blanket has given me the opportunity to meditate on our friend’s wonderful, yet too short, life, and has provided me with an immeasurable amount of closure and acceptance of her passing.

We miss you, Debbie!

    I’m so sorry to hear about your friend. 😦 I’m sure her mother will love the blanket. My thoughts and prayers are with you and her family.

      Thank you for the kind message. I gave the blanket in person and she seemed to really like it – we had a very nice chat about our wonderful memories of her daughter.

    Your photos are lovely. I can’t wait to finally get a chance to chat and hear how Debbie’s mom liked it xoxo
