This is one of the first blankets I ever made about 12 years ago. Good old Red Heart yarn and all DC stitches.
Within the last couple of years, I turned it over to the dogs. They’ve loved it. I usually keep it on the end of the bed for them to waller on at night, or it’s on the couch for them to bundle up in. They are all blanket divers. They love to be under the covers. As you can see it’s worse for wear. I can see three holes in this picture, one which has grown exponentially in the last week or so (the long one at the bottom). It’s been through many cycles in the washer and dryer and held up beautifully until now. It’s starting to disintegrate before my very eyes! It’s used up.
I could repair it, and I did consider it, but I think it’s time. It’s time to say goodbye. Sniff-sniff. I remember how proud I was of this blanket when I finished it. Sniff-sniff.
Goodbye, old friend.
