It's finally finished!

When my mom came back from Ireland, she brought me some beautiful 100% wool yarn that was hand spun and hand dyed. I coupled it with my Scottish wool yarn I had been hoarding for a few years and wove a lapghan:

This is beautiful work. It also looks cozy. Will you keep it? Give it away? Sell it?

Also - what loom did you use, how long have you been weaving? Was the wool nice to work with?

I don't know how I missed this until today.  The lapghan is gorgeous!  I really like the wee bit of pink that's in it.

This is looking delicious. I think I must be insane. It will be 98 degrees tomorrow. LOL. Wool is just scrumptious!
