Starting and Finishing: Black Cascade

When you've got three skeins of Black Cascade 220 and you've been surfing the blogs looking for projects NOT on your list of projects to start, what do you do?

Make a Hemlock Ring Blanket, of course.

Cast on Wednesday night. Cast off Sunday afternoon. Wish you'd had the patience to knit a few more days before casting off. Block too-small blanket, regret impatience, cast on hat to use up the remaining offending yarn.

Pull wool over eyes in shame.

The ring blanket is really beautiful. I think it would make a nice centerpiece cloth for a dining table. You're far too hard on yourself, you know.

No shame, sister. It is fantastic in every way, and that senor is a keeper!:) Also, I will be sending that yarn this week, I promise!

The blanket is really pretty, shame its a little small for purpose, but im sure like Senor said you could use it as a centrepiece or something else. How big did it turn out?
