It's May already! AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok so I finished the Hemlock Ring Blanket and thought I should tell you the tale of a me on a mission to make this thing...
Well the story goes like this, I cast on and then I knit and the blanket grew. It got big. It became a serious source of heat but still, I kept knitting. It got bigger. Then it became huge. Then I ran out of yarn at the end of my very last row. One of the very kind owners of Ariadne Knits offered me enough yarn to cast off. YAY! I started doing that as soon as I got home. Four hours later, I ran out of yarn AGAIN! Back to the yarn store. Again, kind LYS owner supplied me with a little yarn and some good company while I finished this monster.
Then I blocked it. Holy crap, it covered most of a double bed! It stayed pinned down to dry for a good 36 hours and then today I unpinned it and gave it to my dad. He cried. I was happy (and maybe a little misty). He’ll now be the coolest pappy at dialysis what with his new blanket!
Great pattern, super simple. Great yarn. I love it. Oh and one more awesome thing, I learned how to do the Emily Oecker cast on.
Great way to end/start a week :D
