Dear Knitters:
Sharon From Security (ME, pictured at left) designed this super cozy Glamping Blanket in Berroco Vintage Chunky because I got the camping bug this summer. I’m used to station wagon camping (see at left) but I may have put a deposit down on this vintage Sharon Shed/camper at the left which I doctored to make it the proper colors. DO NOT MENTION THIS TO CASAPINKA. Vintage Chunky is the PERFECT blanket yarn, knits up quickly, easy to wash and is comfy for snuggling and also good for stuffing in Jean From I.T.’s exhaust pipe to make it backfire loudly.

Please contact your Local Yarn Store if you would like to order a Berroco Chunky Glamping Blanket kit (directions for what to order, below.) Your LYS can have it dropped shipped to you from Berroco HQ or make up a kit in an equivalent yarn for you if they don’t carry Berroco. Here is a list of stores that carry Berroco yarn. Please support your LYS if you can!

You can also hold 2 skeins of DK together or just stash dive for multiple colors of yarn because anything goes when you’re camping.

If you wish to call your LYS to order Berroco yarn, here is the information you need.

Choose your size of glamping blanket:

For you Canadians out there, the sample blanket is done in: A: Sunny, B: Mochi, C: Fondant, D: Mushroom. Many LYS’ carry Berroco so contact your Canadian LYS to make up a kit since Berroco only drop ships to the USA. Other colors are listed at bottom.

Note that the one in blues to the left makes a great unisex baby blanket, or replace one of the blues with Mushroom (taupe color.)

We expect to see lots of pics of your dogs and cats on their blankets!!!! Pet photos are always encouraged when I’m in charge.

Sincerely,
Sharon From Security, Officer of the Paw, Intrepid Camper and organizer of the Underthebed Tuna Reserves at Casapinka
