My travels have come to an end and I am back home again with two squares. Two squares? Two squares for my Traveling Memory Blanket that is. The hubster and I enjoyed the Pacific Northwest. It is always nice to get away but equally as nice to come back home to Colorado. My views of Pikes Peak off my deck aren’t too shabby and I especially enjoy seeing it on frosty October mornings when the clouds roll through. They serve as a reminder that I really am a high-altitude girl and sometimes live above the clouds. I love these Rocky Mountains!
And, did you know that Bambi lives here? He came to visit me this morning!
I think I have already shown you a picture of the Seattle Square knit with the Berroco Jasper yarn. I chose this yarn because Seattle can be a rather overcast city but when we visited the skies were blue . I thought this yarn was a good representative of the weather.
The Puget Sound Square represents the two stops our ship made in the Puget Sound. Both Nanaimo and Victoria were in British Columbia and I picked two different blues, Classic Elite Portland Tweed and Mirasol, to represent them tied together with a small strip of the yarn I used for the Seattle Square.
These squares are 10″x10″. I wrote the pattern in my travel journal that always accompanies me so it will be readily available on my next trip. I haven’t yet decided if the entire Traveling Memory Blanket should be in shades of blue as these squares are or if I should just pick colors that I feel represent the place I visit. What do you think I should do?
