I posted before about my first layering blankets and looked forward to doing more. I was contacted by my brother's girlfriend's best friend, who is a fabulous photographer about 90 minutes from me. I've done two boudoir shoots and two family shoots with her and if she were closer, I'd do more! Jenna was looking for some basic blankets, and we worked through that she was looking for texture, and openness, and not too "repetitive" (she didn't like a basic blanket all done in double crochet, for example). While I wasn't going to get to re-use the original pattern I created, I was going to get the chance to be creative, and also use up some stash! I LOVE projects like these!!
I did lots of swatching, but in the end, they didn't really help. Some of the designing was done "on the fly", like this one:
And now, some amazing shots from the talented Jenna!
