Generally I consider my photography pretty sucky. This little lap blanket is so pretty, I actually enjoyed trying to get some photos of it!
I found this in a Ravelry group - she took such amazing photos - I had to knit it! The best part is that it was a super quick knit - maybe 15 hours, maybe less... I started it Sunday night and blocked it the next Sunday night. I am giving it to my Grandmother for her 88th birthday in two weeks. It measures just over 4 feet across - a nice little lap blanket. You can find the pattern from BrooklynTweeds blog or Ravelry page. Its a doily (the one he chose is called the Hemlock Ring, although in searching the net, I found the exact same pattern copyrighted to at least 6 people, under different names) knit with size 10 needles and Cascade Ecological Wool yarn. This project more then most REALLY needed blocking. I loved this project!
The worst part of the whole thing, is I found my "large" blocking board is too small. Even for a small project like this, it was not enough. So sometime in my future, there will be a second blocking board to give me more room...
