|Finished blanket, resting.|
As you can see, it is as long as a king size bed is wide. I just looked it up, and that is 76 inches. Hooray, that is long enough to be a blanket, and is actually the length of a twin mattress! When I finished it, my friend Martha and I picked it up, and it was pretty heavy, too. A substantial product for nearly three months of work! It has been quite a healing project for me. I managed to finish something and it looks OK.
I took a few close-up pictures while I had the nice light last night. First, here are two good close-ups of the corners.
And just for fun, here’s a picture of some of the squares in the middle. I do find them cheerful!
|Hoping this close-up gives you a good idea of what the stitches look like.|
I am ready to cast on the small throw using interesting textured yarn that matches my home color scheme this evening. I may try to wind the hanks into balls if I have time before we leave for the campground tonight; otherwise, I will just do it by hand. I remember how!
