I knitted a blanket for BatGirl. The truth is I made one stripe as a scarf and it was way too long and wide even for a very cold winter so I turned it into a blanket.

To give you some perspective this is a queen sized bed.

I also made her a nice warm scarf made out of this cool hand spun and dyed yarn:


The blanket is my first non-scarf project. I am so excited to have finished it! I'm a compulsive non-finisher.  Smiley

Comments are welcome.

Aw shucks.  Embarrassed

My pups LOVED the blanket! It was so hard for me to keep them off of it while I was working on it. I would be in the knitting zone and look down and there would be a pup all snuggled up in it! UGH I had to start keeping it in a bag while I was working on it to keep them off of it.

I knitted a Lizard Ridge last year and I couldnt keep my cats off of it. They really like to suck on and cuddle the Noro. Anyway, Im not saying this to be mean, I just wanted to give you some honest feedback. Next time you make a blanket be a little more careful with your seaming. In the close up you could see a bit of the orange thread where you sewed the seams together. For my first blanket I went to my LYS and had them help me with my seams. It took a little practice, but eventually I got them where they were pretty much invisible. Ok, I totally said my comment with love I promise! So please dont be offended.
