It's rare that I make a pattern twice, but when I do, it tells me it's a great knit.
These are made from a lamb's wool, angora blend. Nice.
They're a modified version of this pattern on Ravelry, and warmer than the cotton/wool pair I made almost exactly a year ago.

My dear friend's house burned completely to the ground this summer, due to a wildfire. I quickly went into action to turn a community quilt top into a blanket of love for her.
I love the way a quilt top becomes a quilt, emerges as a gift imbued with love and prayers for the receiver, and somehow a name suggests itself in the process.
What was simply called Stacked Coins before, became Blueberry Bay; which conjures up images of long summer afternoons on Cape Cod, with the sea in the background, gulls winging overhead and blueberry bushes growing nearby.
