FO - Hemlock Ring Blanket

PaxKnitter's picture

I finally finished!! Bill, WJBDineen, walked in from work this morning as I was starting to block and helped me with the blocking and photos (THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!). It was done with Cascade Eco+, the color is Delft (#7076). I used just over 2 skeins. I used two 60inch and two 32 inch US#10 Addi Turbo Circular needles (yes, four circular needles at once).

The pattern is Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed's adapted doily pattern and can be found at http://brooklyntweed.blogspot.com/2007/08/hemlock-ring-blanket.html

It's really a great pattern, too. Cool idea of using a doily pattern for a blanket.

LOL. This one I did for myself. However, I suppose I would consider parting with it for the right price. I may already have an order for another one.

I'm being lazy - what's the yardage on the CacadeEco?

Some retailers sell it by the number (7076) and some by the color name "Delft" so I included both.

Cascade Eco and Eco+ skeins have approximately 478 yards.

BTW: Before I dive into another HR Blanket, I'm probably going to knit up your Faux Spanish Lace Shawl pattern for my aunt.

I am a huge fan of the last picture attached...you carefully blocking a periwinkle lace blanket that you knit yourself amidst a chest press weight rack and storage shelving in your basement.

Now THAT's what I call manly knitting.
