shhhhhhhh ...


...... it's blocking.

For the last few weeks this blanket has put up a struggle: first when I had to source a complementary colour yarn for the border and then when I ran short of yarn before the border was completed. But the knitting's done, the ends woven in and the blanket's washed and blocking on pins. Phew.

And I'm really, really happy with it. Every tinked stitch was worth it! I'll try to take some better pictures in the next couple of days!

It is absolutely stunning! I WANT IT!!!!!
So beautiful - and I think the border yarn was a great choice.
I am definitely going to have to make a blanket out of those squares.

It has been a real saga hasn't it? But what a great feeling when it turned out so beautifully.
