Flaky - Its all Noro Keureyon. I tend to like the bright colors more than darker color runs. It seems that most of the new Noro colors are all dark. If you want I will pull out my skien wrappers and list all the colorways that I have used so far. *sigh* I still wish I had used Silk Garden instead. It feels nicer and comes in prettier colors. Oh well.

Thanks - don't go to all that trouble.  I have noticed the colorways are a little more muted lately.  The nice thing about this project is that I can put it down for a while and then pick it back up when I find a few skiens I like.  I've been trying to use two of each color & then I do have a couple squares that are just scraps of all the leftovers.  Those are the ones I love the most.

Here's mine. Finally finished! It only took me a few months of knitting on and off on it.


It's knit from Lions Brand Fishermans wool that i wound into little skeins and dyed individually in random earthy colors.


The yarn got alot softer after they dying and blocking processes. The thing weighs a ton though!


It was a housewarming gift for my mom who just had a new house built and it looks great in her new living room. Plus she absolutly loves it!
This is it (unblocked obviously)before i did the edge and wove in all the ends.


I really enjoyed this project and am already thinking of making one for my own.

Everyone's looks fantastic!  I've been eyeing this pattern for a long time.  Noro is definitely too expensive for my budget (and way too itchy on my skin), so I was either going to use Patons SWS or that Joanns yarn that comes in 800 yd. skeins.  I seem to have one in every color.

i was thinking about doing this blanket out of paton's sws, especially now that they have more colors and on sale at michael's this wee.  for anyone that has made this blanket, do you think sws would be a good substitute for the noro?  i was also thinking about using some of the solid sws colors too.  do you think that would throw off the awesomness that is this blanket if some of the squares were solid colors?
