Hemlock Ring Blanket

Pre-blocking state:
I couldn't resist trying it on as a hat.







Blocking:






Hemlock Ring Blanket : 5.25 skeins of Wool of the Andes Bulky, taupe

The color looks kind of boring in the pictures. It's still plain in real life but not nearly as boring. I really liked knitting this. And somehow I finished it within 2 weeks. I hope it blocks quickly because it's on my bed. I don't really want to sleep on the couch tonight.

It turned out great! I think the colour is great, neutrals are really nice for home knits.

Hey! It's fantastic! You're so speedy! You should make another version just for a hat!

That is so beautiful! Every time I see that blanket I get oh so tempted, but so far I have not given in.

And I love the color!

It's so pretty! I think you'll be glad you used a neutral color.

Your blanket turned out gorgeous! I can't believe how fast you finished it! Especially since you are always so busy. Be sure to take it to knit night.
