Hearthside Blanket: A Bohemian Beauty

Kaelyn of iiirdwind (on Etsy, Instagram, Facebook) has graciously finished her eye-catching sample blanket to test my free Hearthside pattern, and what a beauty! She has also provided all of the breathtaking photos for this post. Thank you, Kaelyn! 

When Scheepjes added solid colors to their Secret Garden line, I positively had to have all of them. And what’re a bunch of solid colors missing? A bunch of variegated colors of course. More is more and less is a bore, right?!? (Shop Secret Garden: LoveKnitting (US), WoolWarehouse (UK), KnottyHouse (CA) ❤️)*

You can read about my love for Secret Garden yourself, but I will say it’s like working with a special handspun yarn. Every stitch is a joy, and I cannot wait to release this free pattern to you lovely lot. It’s nearly done! For now, enjoy these gorgeous photos of Kaelyn’s Hearthside blanket.

My absolute favorite photo of Hearthside, ever:

And lounging on the backyard fence:


Here she is with the red and purple bobble edge. Totally honored to have the bohemian beauty photographed in Kaelyn’s nursery. I may have fallen love with the heavy texture of this room by the way. A textile dream!
