The Hemlock Ring Throw

hemlock

Hello knitting blog.  How are you?  I’ve missed you so.  I went on a business trip the week before Thanksgiving and haven’t been in my regular knit & blog routine.  But, I have not been idley sitting by…  I’ve been dutifully chugging away on my Christmas knits.  And, I HAD to start the Hemlock blanket.  It’s a vintage doily pattern that Jared Flood, knitting designer / photographer, modified to turn into an eloquent lap blanket.  The Rainey Sisters took Jared’s modification and the original pattern and put it into a handy PDF file.  From what I’ve seen on ravelry, the blanket looks like a blobby mess until blocked… I’m hoping I’m doing everything right!  It’s been a very satisfying and quick knit so far.  The Casscade Eco +, 100% Peruvian Highland wool, has been great to work with as well and I’m thoroughly enjoying this burnt umber color.

  1. The picture in the PDF looks so beautiful! What color are you making it in? I can't wait to see it! I hate the look of it before I block it… just so hard to imagine the final product. Can't wait!
