Our sons were fighting, so their father told them that they had to go to separate rooms so that we could finish watching our movie in peace.

I ordered this yarn on Saturday morning and it arrived yesterday evening! What speedy service @jimmybeanswool has! It is Cascade 220 Superwash in the Pine Grove colorway (no. 258).

I love this blanket and will make another as a throw blanket at some point. This one is a baby blanket size (31.5 x 42.5). Scroll down on my feed to get the pattern and yarn deets.
