Shale Lap Blanket...



The Shale Blanket is done!  It was such a nice knit and though it looks intricate, it really was so easy!  It took about six weeks to knit this (I began it on August 1st and finished on September 18th). This was my first time using a Jared Flood pattern and I thought that it was written very clearly.  I decided to knit the blanket a bit bigger than it was supposed to be, so there are ten repeats of the pattern rather than seven.  I kept the length the same though (57 repeats of the four rows) and used seven skeins of Madeline Tosh in Composition Book Gray.  It is very cozy to snuggle into this wool blanket in the evenings after the little ones go to bed...  I'm glad that I completed it before the weather turned cooler!

That is wonderful! I was motivated to cast on myself. I have some handspun that's been waiting in the wings.
