Finished It Friday! Blanket

IMG_9207I’m happy to report that thanks to the week of ice & snow
I focused on my blanket and it’s now finished.
It has the Shelibean nap-test approval.

I kept up with everything, so I have stats on it.

Cast-on 1-1-2015
Bind-off 2-19-2015
Finished size 54″ x 69″

1 198 peg KB S-Loom & Kniting hook
8 skeins of Montana Sky Lion Brand HomeSpun Yarn 6oz 185 yds
256 rows
50,432 stitches (I used only 197 pegs)

I’m surprised and happy that I have this blanket finished so soon.
I washed it in a normal wash cycle in a washing machine & dried it on Knits Low in the dryer.
It turned out beautifully and is soft and cuddly.
I’m thinking about starting another one… stay tuned 😉

According to the calender, Spring’ll be here in a few weeks so warm weather can’t be too far off.
I hope you all are staying warm and safe during this rough winter weather.

      • Thank you for visiting Forest Garden today, and for your follow 😉 I liked your comment about your snow. Where are you based? I’m not sure it is how much snow you get, as how well you are prepared to get around in it 😉 Best wishes, WG

          I live in the mid-south USA.I agree with your thoughts. Thankfully, We’re pretty much used to getting around in any kind of weather Mother Nature can throw at us.
          Best Wishes to you too. 🙂

  1. Always important to have pet approval!
    It’s a great looking blanket, I wish I had the time to knit myself one. If I start now, I might have it finished for next winter!

      Welcome to my blog.
      If your next winter is as cold as our this winter is, an extra blanket would be the thing to have.
      Thanks for visiting and leaving me a happy comment.
      I hope you’ll visit again sometime.
