Hemlock Ring

I am pretty pleased with my lightweight Hemlock Ring throw. It is knitted in 21st century yarns 4ply & I used about 2 1/2 skeins. Finished it measures around 5ft across. I knitted an extra 6 pattern repeats to the original & a plain p1 row, k1 row, p1 row border. Its a bit wavy towards the edges but that's OK. I would like to knit this in a heavier yarn at some point & I will ceratinly knit some kind of throw for use in our truck camper this year. Something dog-hair coloured & washable I think!!!!! Son & heir rang today! Totally excited by an awesome day playing in 2ft of fresh powder snow! We had ten minutes of sleet!!!!! Its damp & raw cold NOT fun cold up here 'On the Hill'!

Beautiful!! spent a few hours with a friend this afternoon, drinking tea, eating goodies and both she and I and little Rachel knitting away. lovely! Still working on a baby cardigan, but planning what to do with the 2 pairs of socks worth of yarn I have and the hat I need to knit. I'm also really feeling the urge to try a shawl, after all the beautiful ones you've posted and the ones my sister made for Christmas gifts.

It's lovely! I've seen so many in the heavier yarns - yours is like a breath of Spring.

Gorgeous! Well done you, and also congratulations re: son and heir and the skiing!

I'm afraid we've had days and days of the same 'damp and raw cold' weather; I hate it!

Hello Mrs J. Glad to see the knitting (and blogging about it...) is still going strong! Currently working on essays on sustainable development and sustainability in general. Fun fun fun. Hope all is well over there in Boston Spa. Will
