The challenge for project #2 was to think of a place we like to visit. This will be a stretch but it is the first thought that came to mind when I saw this yarn. I have to confess that often times I buy yarn because I like the name. Twig sounds so much lovelier than brown. And then there is Fig, Copper Penny, Glazed Pecan. just to name a few. So for project #2 I chose Madelinetosh DK in Chickory. There are lovely shades of teal and grey-brown. Mom-to-be chose the color. The pattern is Alex's blanket from Auroraknits.
OOPS. forgot to say how this tied into a place I like. Chickory reminds me of New Orleans--no I have never been there! Chicory reminds me of coffee that may be served there. I definitely want to go to New Orleans. It is on my bucket list of adventures. I have a niece who attended Tulane and a nephew who will be going to Tulane this Fall. I'm not sure even I can follow my own logic!!!
