Recently I hinted about a wedding blanket under construction and gave a sneak peek. The wedding was at the end of August and I can now give you the full reveal :). But most especially, congratulations to Matt and Cassady!
This gift was from the parents of the groom, so it was important that the blanket have a masculine sensibility to it but at the same time be welcoming to a very feminine bride.
So, for him: subdued, masculine colors. For her, a foliage print and the black Gap sweater with ribbon embroidery. For both, a cashmere binding to cuddle up to. (On a meaningful note, the binding is made from a sweater the groom’s dad contributed.)
May your marriage be a blessing to you both, Matt and Cassady.

This blanket has already gone to a good home.

Thanks, Joan, for creating such a beautiful blanket for Matt and Cassady. They were espcially touched by it when they opened their gift on the night before their wedding. I felt like we were sharing with them a part of us through your creativity with our woolens. And a lifelong gift it will be. Nothing from Crate & Barrell or BB&B can do that!! Thank you so very much, Joan!
You’re welcome, Mary Ann. It was an honor, a privilege, and a pleasure. I loved doing it for them and for you.

As always, the balance of color is perfect! Your blankets always have a thoughtful look to them. I love it.

Thanks, Resweater. And as I know you know, it’s just so darn fun to sew with this stuff!
