Old Forge from Stephen West

The blanket is finished and blocked. It is a Stephen West pattern and it is lovely. It is an easy to knit pattern and the results is a very drapey blanket that measures 72 inches across. I am a loose knitter and that accounts for the bigger size. The main color would have taken me 9 skeins, and 2 of the contrasting Red. 17 days from start to end. Thanks for stopping by.

That's odd...I never considered steam blocking a piece of knitting as pornographic. ;-P
