I made this blanket as a wedding gift for my sister using blue Goa (cotton/silk?) and Noro Silk Garden (wool/silk).  I love the colors in Noro yarn and used a few different kinds.  I think the pathways all blend nicely.

I also liked this pattern, it was simple but still looks somewhat complex. It also is sort of reversible without being a rib knit so you gotta love that! 

The only thing is that because I used a thinner yarn the texture came out rather "spongy".  I think this would be better in a chunky or bulky. And, despite checking my gauge FOUR times, it came out much narrower than expected.   Angry



I was casting off the DAY OF THE WEDDING! and ended up giving it to her without weaving in the ends (I swear Im going to do that next time I `visit!).  Frankly, she wont notice, but it bothers me!

I think it's beautiful!! I like the "spongy" look, actually. It looks like it drapes oh so well on a cold winter night Smiley

... Must have been an expensive blanket... but worth it! it's very pretty, nice work.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.
