Hemlock Ring Blanket

It is finally finished! I loved this blanket, and for anyone wanting to improve their lace skills, this is a great intermediate project that is VERY rewarding, though it does require a bit of time to complete! My buddies Bill (WJBDineen) and Paul (Paxknitter) helped to block it and here are the photos! It is done in Cascade Eco, the color is Tarnish. The extended pattern requires just about 2 skeins, mine needed like 2.05 skeins, so now I've got a bunch left over.

And again, THANK YOU SO MUCH BILL AND PAUL!!!!!! *ETERNALLOVE*

Enjoy!

PS: This pattern is Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed's adapted doily pattern. Thus, MEGADOILY!

Are you insinuating that my knitting "Blows"?

It's truly amazing!! I'm looking forward to seeing mine blocked especially after seeing your's. I have 4 more rounds to go and then the bind-off. Mine will go into a third skein, too.

Peace,
Paul

beautiful! I'm about halfway through mine. I hope it looks even a fraction as great as yours.

Really beautiful work, it looks perfect! Also, I love the color choice, even the name is intriguing. Now a have a bunch of questions... What are the (approximate) measurements? And where does the pattern come from?

nice nice niiiiiceee! This is one pattern I admire but haven't started *yet* - someday, maybe; just not right now... too many other things going on... it IS on my list of things to make before I croak though... and your post makes me move it one notch higher... :)

That is damn fine work Skip! How did you like binding it off?

The owner of my LYS and her partner in crime were showing me this while I was there on Wednesday. She had recommended this as my next project after looking at the feather and fan wrap I had just done. She had one done up in the Cascade eco-wool as well as the regular Cascade 220.

I just might....

OMG! I hope that one of these YEARS I'll be able to do something 1/4 as good as that!
Beautiful, just amazing!
