Hemlock Ring

Ugly duckling:


Beautiful swan:

This was a fun and easy knit, and the blanket turned out gorgeous! I first bought this yarn to make a bag out it it, but decided it was too beautiful to use to shlep my stuff around. So instead, when I wake up, I wrap this around me and have some tea, and it helps alleviate my morning grumpiness.
Pattern: Hemlock Ring Blanket
Yarn: Peace Fleece Worsted, 3 skeins (had very little left over)
Needles: 5mm or 5.5mm, depending on what length circular I had
Size: about 45" across; I knit the same number of rounds as Brooklyn Tweed

What a great example of the power of blocking! I still can't wrap my head around the idea of a round blanket, but it is a beautiful work of art.
