I'm currently working on the Hemlock Ring Blanket. I'm using Cascade Eco+ Blue #7076 on two #10 circular needles. Here it is at round 47.
The pattern can be found at http://brooklyntweed.blogspot.com/2007/08/hemlock-ring-blanket.html
It's a great pattern, and will be so warm.
Paul, that's an amazing color. I'm kinda jealous, actually. Mine seems all boring and I realize I do a lot of things in grey. I wonder if this might be indicative of something...

I usually gravitate toward darker colors, but I chose to override my natural tendency for using dark colors and got this nice shade of blue (there was a really pretty dark green Cascade Eco+ that I almost got). I'm really glad that I chose a lighter color.
I'm really enjoying knitting this pattern. It's also been good to have something low impact to work on while I'm recovering from a mild case of pneumonia.
Get well soon.
I love the colour and the pattern. It will be gorgeous when finished.
What is the fiber and how large will the blanket be?
It's 100% Natural Peruvian Wool. The size has yet to be determined. The pattern extension creates a roughly 4 foot blanket, but you could keep extending it. I haven't decided.
WOW, I am so impressed. What a beautiful pattern and color.
gotta love those Cascade colours. Your work is impressive, what a great project.
Looking good. Can't wait to see it finished.
...there's someting cheerful about knitting with a wonderful colour...it can make a long term knit much more pleasant.
Thanks for sharing the close up! I'm just starting a Hemlock Ring (also in Cascade Eco, except I chose maroon) and seeing the detail is very helpful.
