before I forget- does anyone have any fabric with map imagery on it that you’d like to trade or sell me? I’m looking for something map-like but not too terribly specific. I was looking at hankies and tea towels on ebay, with state maps, but it really wasn’t mappy enough.
And my blanket is done!
It has a little fringe, all the ends that were in the middle of the rows are sewn in, I washed it and now it is ready for keeping us cozy. It has started already-
I just couldn’t help myself when I was photographing the blanket.
It took me 5 1/2 weeks to knit. I only used yarn that I already had. It weighs 1 lb and 10 oz. It is approximately 4 ft x 4 ft. It was knit with worsted weight wool on size 10 1/2 needles which made a loose and drapey fabric. Here is a photo on Flickr that shows the blanket spread out.
