Sprinkle a little holiday magic in your nest with this oh-so-fabulous knit blanket. Introducing the Woodside Fair Isle Festive Blanket by the designer Jenny Watson, using West Yorkshire Spinners The Croft Aran weight yarn.
Picture this: the Shetland Islands, about 100 miles off the coast of Scotland, home to sheep that make the softest, sturdiest, coziest wool around. This yarn isn't just for knitting; it's for crafting pieces that are as warm as a snuggly hug and as strong as your love for the holidays.
Now, let's dive into the Woodside blanket itself. It's like a trip down memory lane, with a twist of modern flair. It features ribbed borders with bands of stranded colorwork that showcase everything holidays: evergreen trees, delicate snowflakes, and other merry patterns that'll make you smile. And guess what? Woodside isn't just a blanket; it's a warm and loving family heirloom in the making.
