no. 25/ blankets

i've had my brown toned blanket since 1973.  a gift from john horan.  its in good condition, except where the binding has frayed.  the checkerboard pattern is still rich in earth colors; bronze and rust outlined in black.

of course i think of  Navajo blankets;the designs hand woven over time

i think of new blankets in my closet...pretty but unused.

i treasure the aged yarns of my mother's afghans
and my old brown blanket.
