First item for sale!

My Etsy shop is officially up and running! You can find it here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MeasuredandSlow.

Here's a peek at my first item up for sale:

ImageIt's a dove grey blanket with star squares surrounded by a seed stitch, based on this pattern. It is, of course, a lot bigger, and I chose to use only the star and leave the heart. Seed stitch is one of my favorites - it just looks so simple and crisp. I used a wool mix yarn that is washable and dryer safe, and it washed up to be super soft. I'm tempted to steal it for our own couch, but I'm hoping it can find a nice new home instead!
