Finally, it's finished! I mucked something up and had to put it away for months on end before I could come back to it and frog back down to fix the mistake....

....however, when I was blocking it, I can see a mistake in the section that's the start of the round. Oh well, can't do anything about that now. I'll just have to live with it. I'm sure that I will still love it though.

The diametre of the blanket is about 100 cm. I could have done it bigger, but I just couldn't knit any more on it. I used up about 5 balls of the yarn. Still have a ball and a bit more left. I'll probably knit a hat out of that. :-p

Anyway, perfect timing that I finished my Hemlock Ring Blanket.

Dr. D's away on another wedding this weekend and I need to study for my diploma exams that's coming in mid-September. The weather is turning into Autumn, i.e. it's cooler now and it's been raining and drizzling. So I can snuggle my legs under my blanket and study away. Perfect weather for such a thing and a cuppa to go with it.

Say - you said 5 balls of yarn is that at 110m each? For some reason I thought it took way more than that (even if it is a bit smaller than you thought). It looks great!
