blanketed

I finished my Hemlock Ring Blanket! Actually, I finished it a couple of weeks ago but have only just got around the photographing it. I really love how it turned out and hope that Mum likes it when I give it to her this week.

The finished article. It’s very comfy to sit under [just ask Lara!]

Here we have the blanket in its just off the needles state.

I would like to draw your attention to the bedspread as it was a gift to myself from Melin Tregwynt Mill, not the cheapest thing I have ever bought, but I love it – as do the cats. 🙂

This is the blanket spread out on my bed atop two layers of towels. I was somewhat concerned about putting a damp blanket on top of my lovely bed but it was fine and the only place really big enough to block it.

One last shot of the finished blanket. I shall be knitting other versions in the future as it was a really satisfying knit.

  1. Beautiful! I have it in my Ravelry queue. Suppose I better get on it soon, or wait til next winter, because I can’t imagine working on it when it’s warm out.

  2. It’s a really pleasant knit and very fast! I was amnased at how quickly it came together. But yes, knitting a blanket in the blazing sunshine isn’t such a good idea! Heh

  3. In the end it came out at 110cm in diameter (43″ across). I would make it a tad bigger next time but I was running out of wool [and DID run out on the cast-off!] and needed to stop knitting! It’s a good size to throw across your lap, though. 🙂
