My Finished Babette!!
When I got up this morning I was a bit lost. My routine is to feed the dog and get her business done, pour my Diet Pepsi for that boost of caffeine, sit down on the sofa putting my feet up, and then picking up my crochet...but this morning I had no crochet in the basket! It seemed so strange. Finishing a project always does this to me. It leaves me a little lost in the morning. But this will not last long!
Believe it or not, I am not sick of looking at her. Many times, and I am sure some of you know what I am talking about, I get burnout when I spend so much time working on one thing. This didn't do that to me. In fact I cannot get enough of looking at my Babette, or touching it for that matter. Which leads me to my next thought! I have been seriously thinking about felting it. It is a bit scratchy since it is 100% wool. I thought lightly felting it would make it a little softer. Thoughts anyone??
I felted an extra square. I should have photographed it. I will do that and get a picture of it uploaded. I really like the way it turned out.
But for now, I am going to bask in the sea of color that this blanket has. It's like a painting...Painting with Yarn!
I will leave you with a little shot of me posed with my Babette.
Happy 4th everyone! I'm off with camera in hand, and Babette in the other hand...I need more pictures. :-)
