I’m sort of creepy and obsessive when it comes to internet searches. I have always hunted for the next best deal on the internet (you know if something is on sale in a store, it’s cheaper online … and there’s a coupon), but ever since the inception of websites chock full of pretty (a.k.a., Pinterest) my compulsion has increased dramatically. I want THE source … not just the Tumblr/We Heart It/Reblogged source.
And then came the giganto blanket. It’s this huge and wonderful blanket (It’s so fluffy, I could die!) that the whole world re-posts, but without an origin. I’m decorating an aspirational home, people – this blanket is vital. But today, I hit gold. Seriously, you’d think I’d won the lottery (or a costly blanket).
And because I am the butt of every joke, the blanket is a DIY. A not so simple DIY. A not so simple at all DIY. This DIY requires knitting prowess. And two pieces of PVC pipe. Actually, the ever-so-talented DIYer started knitting with two broomsticks, but quickly realized those super-sized knitting needs wouldn’t cut it, and switched to PVC PIPE! Yeah, go nuts, knit away talented crafters.
