Knitted blanket 2012 by Mona Abdel-Rahman Raw fleece: 3 days to wash and dry; about 2-3 years to hand-card the wool and spin on a Turkish drop-spindle; at least two 5-10 day sessions of natural dyeing; another 2 weeks skeining the wool; 7 months to knit the blanket; one afternoon to machine wash and "full" (shrinking process to make it more durable); 5 minute photo shoot; priceless. photo taken by Tom Fiero Beautiful!
