I had the idea for this throw blanket, warm and artsy and beautiful. I could see it in my head, knitted simply, to show off the extravagant hand dyed, hand spun art yarn, allowing for the material itself to catch your eye. So I wrote to my friend here on Etsy, who spins "Yarn that rejuvenates your creative spirit",

http://www.terrabellaspun.etsy.com

and told her what I was looking for. I wanted the yarn to be warm, touchable, and inspire all the colors of the Sunlit Clouds, as I watch them morph and change and streak with colors from dawn to dusk during the summer months here in Central Texas. They aren't just white, but a mixture of colors layered on top of one another, evolving and inspiring artists the way they have for generations. And of course a touch of sparkle that comes from the sun as it moves across the sky, evoking colors in the sky and here on earth as it moved from East to West. These aren't Storm Clouds, but the kind that brighten the horizon in the morning, float lazily across the sky and then bloom with color at Sunset, all of which can be seen from my small horse farm in the country.

Renae and I conversed back and forth for weeks before we agreed on the colors, the materials and the width of the yarn. When I began to work on this project, knitting from the corner so that the natural lines of stitches and color would be on the diagonal, I knew right away that the adherence to exactly what I wanted had paid off. This blanket is a SHOW piece.

Knitted from over 1,000 yards of Merino with Multicolored Mohair and Silver Metallic fibers, the yarn has a delightful texture, a mix of hand dyed colors and a touch of Sparkle that shines as it moves in the light. But most of all, this Merino is knitted loosely enough to give the blanket movement, while making sure that I knitted it closely enough to hold in the heat. This is a blanket for a cold day, whether across your lap, as a covering for two people snuggled up for a nap, or placed just so on top of a beautifully made bed, adding the finishing touch to a creative plan for an alluring room.

There is also a small strip of naturally colored CURLY LOCKS placed about 1/3 of he way into the blanket, (see the bottom of the 3rd picture) to act as a reminder of the way the clouds can be windswept, whirling and circling in the light winds that happen far above the ground. This bit of gorgeous curl also adds a touch of new texture and whimsy, and was was spun from Wensleydale Curly Sheep locks by Etsy's own:

Pam raises her own sheep, llamas, and alpaca, a "Dream Come True Farm" in her own words.

This addition makes my blanket a true One of a Kind work of art, you will NEVER see another one like it again.

I am delighted to see this Blanket included in the following gorgeous Treasuries and Collections:
