Lookie look what I got!

I'm a few days late in posting this, but I must show off photos of the gorgeous, soft, heavy, warm sofa spread that I commissioned from irishredlass. Isn't it luscious?!

The craftsmanship is beautiful, it smells wonderful, and the colors go beautifully with our living room, the (not pictured) sage green rug and dusty blue squishy chair. It's especially welcome since it snowed again yesterday (hiss boo) and the highs (ha ha) for next week look like this: Monday 19°, Tuesday 15°, Wednesday 12°. Yikes!!!

I also commissioned a baby blanket for some friends but unfortunately didn't have a chance to get pics before I had to wrap it and give it. They are under strict instructions to provide a photo -- with infant -- sometime around March when the offspring arrives. If they oblige, I shall post. Thank you, irishredlass!

We tried to get a picture with the cats, but you know how they are. They have to prowl and sniff and investigate before they're willing to curl up on something ;)

Gorgeous! That Irish is one talented lady! There's nothing better than a woolen afghan, especially one made with love from a friend.

It will become a loved heirloom, I have no doubt :)

I'm pretty sure it's crochet, but it's done with multiple strands and a big fat stitch which makes it thicker and heavier than normal crochet (or at least, most of the crocheted stuff I've seen). Ask irishredlass over on her LJ, she can tell you more. And if you want one, she'll take your order ;)

Mr Psmith wants to know how you made the afghan smell so good. He's been inhaling deeply and saying, "OOh, that's nice..."

Wash on gentle cycle warm water with 2X Era laundry soap and then dry with Snuggle Blue Sparkle fabric softener sheet. LOL

It would be smoke and Irish Whiskey here LOL no actually it would be vodka tonics. Because I am a smoker and most are not I wrapped it in plastic straight from the dryer
