Another WIP crossed off the list! I'm not even going to look back at my posts and see when I started this. It was a badly planned project that started out as a small blanket and turned into a single bed size blanket when I realised I had enough aran wool to do twelve panels.
The blanket was always intended for Jake's bed. In between the start and the finish he moved from a single bed to a small double and had a black and grey bedroom makeover but it will still be a useful tv blanket for draughty winter's evenings.
That sideways picture is Jake holding it up, you can just about see his arms. The blanket must be just over six feet tall so it's a bit of a whopper. It also weighs a considerable amount because the stitch is quite a dense one, but that makes it incredibly warm. I think it's going to be popular. I've already 'borrowed' it myself.
Obviously you can't lay a blanket out on the decking without a dog coming along and laying down on it! Riley says he wouldn't mind this one for his basket. Dream on!
