Hemlock Ring Lap Blanket

This is the Hemlock Ring Lap Blanket. Very easy knitting with Cascade Eco Wool and U.S. size 10.5 needles. This is about 4 feet across making it not easy to block! But the knitting was really easy. This was taken from a doily pattern then just enlarged by using heavy worsted weight yarn and large needles.

Triinu Vine and Leaf Shawl

This took me quite a while to knit, but it was always interesting. It is knit in lace weight 100% cashmere with U.S. size 5 needles. I did not block it hard because I added to the length and width. It measures 90 inches across and 45 inches long. The color is Dark Natural purchased from Colourmart in England.
I would have to look back in my blog archives to see when I started this project. I only know that it took me months to knit. Partly because I had to keep track of every stitch on every row. Other than that, this was not difficult, but it sure looks like it was! I love this one!!

If you ask me for information about this pattern, remember I can not answer your queries without your email address.
