Felted Wool A+ Wedding Blanket
I made this blanket for one of my best friends as a wedding gift. I wanted something felted and warm, that they could cozy up in together. I think this blanket does the trick! The pictures do not do this blanket justice at all. It is so beautiful and the colors are gorgeous!

The Wedding Blanket
Just as the two of you started as separate individuals, coming into this world raw and without experience, this blanket started out as simple strands of yarn, rolled up neatly and ready to be worked.
As each of you has gone through life, you’ve grown and learned in many ways, knitting squares of experience as individuals.
When you met each other, these squares of experience were fastened together to form a more beautiful whole, to complement and contribute to each other, and learn from one another as you continued your journey.
As you take this step of marriage and total commitment to each other, you will undergo a felting process, where you will become one in purpose and intent, just as the stitches in this blanket disappear and become one when they are submersed in hot water.
As you compromise and apply yourselves in selfless service to each other throughout your marriage, your love will grow and develop more than you can imagine, adding a beautiful accent to your relationship, just like the subtle border on this blanket.
My hope is that every time you look at this blanket, you’ll remember the promises and commitments you’ve made to each other today, and that it can keep you cozy and warm, just as your constant love for each other will continue to strengthen your marriage.
