Another Hokie Blanket

*
As previously mentioned, Issy & I brought a bag of Hokie squares back from Saturday's adventure. Tuesday night, our knitting group sewed them into another Hokie Healing blanket:

I didn't take any pictures Tuesday night, so I missed a lot of good action shots of the sewing and the finished blanket and several visitors, including Mary Jane's puppy Nell, but Jane did a good job of documenting the evening, so check out the pictures on her blog post.

For now, I will leave you with this Hokie-colored daylily blooming in the garden today:

My good friend, Christine, who makes the Bioque skincare, knitted that light house...she'll be thrilled to hear it was your favorite!

Thanks for the photo of the blanket. Orange so not being my color, it was hard for me to see the beauty in it--the love absolutely, but the beauty not so much. Being one of the holders, I didn't have a chance to step back and see the whole thing, so I appreciate your putting it on your blog in toto as it were and then I could see the beauty that several of the B&N customers mentioned.
