Mary~Thanks! I don't know how big it is. I'll have to measure it tonight when I get home. I did 116 rounds though. It didn't block really flat on the part of all the K2tog's, but I have it draped over my chair in my familyroom, so you can't really tell.

I honestly think there's a solution for this blocking problem in changing the pattern and I seriously want to do that. The "Old Shale Tablecloth" has the feather and fan pattern in it and it's just a matter of adapting the two patterns to each other.... Marrying the two patterns ought to produce one that will lay out flat and work for non-wool yarn applications as well.

Karina~Thanks! I used Debbie Bliss Cotton/Angora. It's really soft. If I didn't have it in my stash (I frogged a sweater) I probably wouldn't have used it. By the end of it, I was only getting 3-4 rounds per ball. Not a lot of yardage in the Debbie Bliss for something like this. I didn't think I was going to have enough to bind off.

Lisa, it came out beautiful. I think that if I had more time on mine, it would have blocked out better, even with all the extentions. So, I do believe in the increases that Mary did for us, it will work fine in wool.
But who knows, I'll have to try it later, but DARN you people with coming up and finding all these AMAZING other doilies!
What do you think in regard to finding a tablecloth (circular and small) and trying to do a blanket out of that. You wouldn't need to do any increases and may have to do some decreasing in some of the repeats. Might be an interesting thing to test, but you're going to have a pretty large blanket. LOL
Come on all, let's see more of the finished products. And if you are just starting on the Hemlock and want to do some or all of the increases, please use wool and if you have any questions we are all here to help.
This is one of the best forums around and everyone is so great here.

Thanks Gino! I think any of these doily type patterns could be made into afghans. The tablecloths would definitely make larger throws. I think it's fun just to experiment with different yarns and gauges.

A Finished Hemlock and many thanks!!
Hi everyone, I finally finshed the lapghan and loving it. It is no longer for my fatherinlaw, but for my mother (or me). I could not have done this without you guys/gals making it seem so easy and guess what it was. Go TEAM!!
Trials and tribulations can be found on my blog Without further ado...

Very pretty! You did a great job! It's nice to see it once it's finally blocked out. I decided to keep mine. It's draped over the back of my favorite chair. Congrats on finishing it!

Which one are you going to start next??

I'm working on the Egeblad now. I actually like working on the pattern better than the Hemlock. I'm on row 84 out of 87. I think the Alita might be next.
