Blanket FO!!!!


 It started out like this:   a Log Cabin blanket.....
It started out right after Christmas....

Then it turned to stripes.

I stayed pretty much monogamous throughout the 2 months.  



 Now I love it.  It is for my family.  (cats not included)  

The specs: 

48 inches long, 36 inches wide.

Knit on circular Clover needles size 8 

Yarn: Simplicity by Hikoo 
55% Merino  SUPERWASH
28% acrylic
17% Nylon

( sometimes it is splitty yarn) 
The Cost:  about a hundred dollars.  Each Skein is 107 meters for $6.75.  
 The colors: (obviously: )
Black Brown Green Red Cream and a bit of Aqua. 
 There are a few mistakes, but I hid them well.   Thanks for the encouragment on the blanket journey.   I think its time for a nap...

How short are you? Fireman seems likes he's tall enough that 48" won't be a long enough blanket. That being said (I'm just yanking your blanket) I love it! You did a fabulous job and the colors are stunning. g

It's great! Congratulations on the big finish. I love the colors. I may have to pick up my bedside WIP and join you in finished blanket land. Well Done!

Nice work! I like the stripes so much better than the log cabin. Great colors, too. I've never knit anything bigger than a baby blanket, so I am impressed with your diligence! It looks great! Enjoy it!

You've inspired me to knit my own blanket. Sorting through my yarn now to find the odd balls I can use. Thanks!
