Årets tæppe / Blanket of the year
Kanten var godt nok lidt stram på begge de korte sider, men jeg satsede på, at en gang vask og stræk kunne hjælpe til med det problem.
The good thing about sitting at home on the couch being sick, is, that you get to finish stuff. The last few rounds on the temperature-blanket got done, and suddenly, it was actually done!
The edge looked a bit tight on both ends, but I hoped a wash and a stretch would help this specific problem.
Til sidst fik den en gang krebsemasker, og så kom den i vaskemaskinen. Tre gange. For at få spindeolien ud.
The edge kind of invented itself along the way. First, I thought the colors should be equally represented in the edge, but I discovered that yellow as the main color and a row of each of the other colors looked quite nice.
It got crab stitches as the final round, and then it went into the washing machine. Three times. To get rid of the spinning oil.
Blackhill Højlandsuld og vejer 845 gram.
Tæppet startede for snart lang tid siden, og det blev ikke et helt år i temperaturer. Jeg ville ikke have et knap 3 meter langt tæppe. Basta! Det var sjovt at lave, og jeg kan virkelig godt lide både farver og striber.
Der bliver nok ikke noget temperatur-tæppe næste år, men et tæppe tror jeg nok jeg skal lave. Det er nu hyggeligt!
It went well! The blanket is really nice and soft, and the edge could be stretched after wash.
It measures 130 x 180 cm (perfect size for a blanket!). It's made using Blackhill Højlandsuld and weighs 845 grams.
The blanket was started a long time ago, and it didn't end up as an entire year of temperature. I didn't want an almost 3 meter long blanket. It was fun to make, and I really like both the colors and the stripes.
Next year won't come with a temperature-blanket, but I do think I'll make some blanket. They are so nice to have!
