Most recent Photo prop project

I just finished this custom order for a local photographer . . .
hand knit "grass" blanket photo prop
This fabulous photographer is very creative and ordered a custom blanket that looked like grass.  I knit two different shades of green yarn that were very different in texture to simulate the variation in natural grass.   In this photo the blanket is rolled up and packaged with a bow and a little gift I gave her . .  . crochet flower clip with a sparkle gem center.
