I just finished mine and am curled up in it right now! I loved this project - it took me a few months and I would pick it up and put it down, but I was always happy to get back to it.

Congratulations!  It is absolutely gorgeous.  I have put mine down for a few weeks due to a rough term in school & now I am more anxious than ever to get it started again.  Did you do the crochet edging?

Im curious, are there a few place that the panels arent sewn together? I thought I saw some holes where the color of the sofa was poking through... or is that just the photo?
I HATE sewing seams when Im finished knitting. Ive been working my blanket in long rows, so when Im done Ill only have 4 long pieces to sew together. Im a little nervous about this. Let me know if you had any problems with the finishing.

It is really beautiful! I loved this pattern, but a few things have kept me from it, the price for one, but also the itchness of noro - Jemjerkia, is your blanket scratchy or itchy? Another thing is washability - obviously, it shouldn't need to be washed often, but when it does you'll have to handwash... how do you handwash something so large? In the bathtub?

I finished a few squares for this over the weekend.  The yarn softens considerably with washing and blocking (I wet blocked versus steaming and liked the results), but I still find it to be a fairly rough final product.  I'm actually thinking of lining my blanket when it's complete to make it a bit more inviting and snuggly.

I've been thinking about that too.  Not only for the itchy factor - but also because my sewing skills are less than stellar & that way the seams won't show.   It could almost take on more of a quilt look with the lining. Let me know what ideas you have for lining it - I've been hesitant because I don't know what kind of fabric to use.

Jemjerika: Your blanket is gorgeous! I'm so glad to see a finished one, now I'm revved up to work on my own Grin


I like the idea of lining the blanket too. What kind of fabric would you use though? I love the feel of flannel, but combined with the wool yarn, would it be too warm? How would you pick a color? Something solid would probably be best, since the blanket itself is so busy.

I was hoping to get mine finished in time to enter it in our big county fair in September (there is always the prettiest stuff competing every year), but with the entry deadline in August and only four squares in, I don't think I'll make it. I don't want to try and rush, our I'll just end up disliking the project.

The squares start going a lot faster once you get going. You might be able to do it!  I was thinking about flannel too but feared it too hot.  Maybe a lightweight denim chambray?
