Happy New Year!
Since I last blogged, I finished the Tweed Baby Blanket by Jared Flood. I apologize to those of you who checked back in the last 4 months expecting to see the finished product. I managed to finish it during the final week of my summer vacation. If I hadn't finished it, I don't think I ever would have. I enjoyed working on the blanket. The middle garter stitch panel was great for TV knitting and the feather and fan border was easy to memorize. I used Knitpicks City Tweed DK, the original yarn called for in the pattern before it was changed to Shelter. When the knitting was complete, I soaked the blanket in woolwash then pinned it out on the blocking board. I ended up using two blocking boards. Once dry, the blanket was a nice big size. Unfortunately, I was so quick to photograph and gift it that I didn't take any final measurements.
Here are a few pictures of it:

Over the past few weeks, I've seemed to get into the groove with my knitting. I've started new projects and finished old ones, which I hope to share with you in the coming weeks. I wish you all the best for the new year.
Happy Knitting! ♥
