New Project

I love to knit large project, and if complicated then all the better.  So my latest project, although not really complicated, it will be large.  My Mum had given me tonnes of her yarn stash, stuff she decided she would not need or use.  Among the stash was lots of packs of yarn of the same type, so with a pack of 8 balls of Robin Chunky, I decided a blanket was in order.

This is my version of Jared Flood’s Hemlock Ring Blanket.

I love to work in the round, and the first time I did this was back in late 2012 with Stephen West’s Old Forge which is truly beautiful creation.  I have also completed his “Bit of Iceland”, and made a green version I called “A Bit of Ireland”.  The growth of anything like this so quick to start, then after about 50 rounds it seems to slow right down, and in anything other than this I would get fed up with it and shove it in a bag and leave it, as I have with an oblong blanket I started (also Stephen West design).  But there is something about circular knitting I find truly addictive.

For this some of my friends think I need psychological testing….
