The blanket is finished and blocked. It is a Stephen West pattern and it is lovely. It is an easy to knit pattern and the results is a very drapey blanket that measures 72 inches across. I am a loose knitter and that accounts for the bigger size. The main color would have taken me 9 skeins, and 2 of the contrasting Red. 17 days from start to end. Thanks for stopping by.

Way cool blanket! Freaky picture- vaguely pornographic. ;-)

That's odd...I never considered steam blocking a piece of knitting as pornographic. ;-P

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Andy brought the blanket to knitting night, Monday...it's really wonderful! Not as thick as it appears in the photos...very cuddly and comfy!

Oh Andy! You have produced another fab piece! This really is nice. I am not sure who is the larger enabler, you or MMario :P. This one is in my must do line up.

WOW that is amazing - I so want to try that, but I'm just a returning beginner.

Love to have a go thought.
