Chocolate and vanilla
D was not exactly impressed by my choice of wool suiting for the chocolate-and-vanilla blanket pictured above. He wasn't disparaging, but the word "unusual" was tossed around. I, however, remain convinced that it was the perfect selection for the type of warm, lightweight cover I was going for. My only regret is that, being such a rich, dark color, it does pick up cat hair a little too easily.
Now I need to decide which blanket to give to my dad for Christmas. Today's is classier looking and the longer length will be more comfortable for him when he takes his many, many naps on the sofa, but because it's wool my mom won't be able to just toss it in the wash. Yesterday's is classic rather than classy, and is wonderful in ways I described in my last post, but the size is wrong and the colors won't go with the room it's intended for. Well, I have a few days to think it over. In the mean time, maybe I'll have a chance to try them both out.
