I’ve decided to
try to catch up on my projects before starting new ones.
I chose my blanket to finish up first. It’s been on the loom for quite a long time now.
I’m happy to finally have it finshed.
Shelibean tried the blanket out first. He seems to think it’s just right.
Here’s my blanket’s stats:
168 pegs – 28″ Knitting Board Loom + peg extenders
KB Knitting hook
8 skeins of 6oz 185 yds ‘Pearl’ Lion Brand HomeSpun Yarn
Finished size 58″x58″
Here’s wishing all you all luck in finishing up your works-in-progress.
I’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.
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
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.
