FO Friday

So remember this?  The blanket I made for a friend who was getting married in July....well, here it is in all its huggable glory!

This pattern is Wool Leaves by Jared Flood..... it was a breeze, and it is just as I wanted know me Blanket Girl....always looking for the next big project...and this one didn't disappoint.

The yarn is Sirdar Big Softie Super Chunky  I'm not sure I really want to think about how many balls I used, but probably around 15.  I would recommend the yarn, really soft and did exactly what it said on the tin.

The picture above was the blanket, unblocked and the one below, blocked.  After blocking it was far more drapey and grew a bit too, which was nice as the chunky yarn in this was swallowed up like candyfloss.

So there you have more love still not satisfied.....

For the first time I am joining up with Tami's Amis

  4. It's beautiful. A special gift. We need a yarn squidging feature on blogs!

  5. A beautiful, thoughtful gift. It will be cherished.

  6. Truly epic knitting! This is a gift to be appreciated forever. I am wondering from your comments if your yarn comes in "tins" like I from the States understand a tin to be--a little metal container?

  7. It's gorgeous, Faith! Elegant and neutral as well as looking deliciously snuggly and will be fab in all and every setting. What a wonderful wedding present! E x
