I LOVE cotton!!! As a blankie, it should be nice!

Niebling sure has some beautiful pieces and there are tons of them!!! I have the Lyra pattern, just trying to finish up some WIPs so I can try it! I really like the round one. I also wanna do "Tischedecke"...not sure if it's a Niebling but I think it is. Check out "Fleegle" on Ravelry, she did the Tischedecke into a blanket....gorgeous!

Minou, as usual, you have produced yet another beauty and your work is so divine!

Finally!
At last, I got the cool weather and proper motivation and got my
Egeblad blanket finished! I was never so happy to do that final crochet
stitch on the edge and fasten off haha. Mary, I could have never
finished it without you sending me those 60" circulars. Thank you,
thank you!! I'm going to try and get a pic of the unblocked blanket
and I have no idea when I'll get a pic of it blocked as I'm still trying
to come up with a cunning plan for blocking. I just have no room
anywhere and my dh said the bed is off limits! haha Right now
I'm thinking about trying to put in the living room floor after bedtime
and putting stuff around it so the dog can't get on it...we'll see

Libbie - Can't wait to see the photos. Did you do the extensions or the original pattern. how big did it end up.

Ok here's the pics of the unblocked blanket. Karina, I did the
extension rounds and unblocked it comes out to about 45" across.
I'm curious to see what blocking does to it hehe....

Oh Libbie, you're so welcome and I'm so glad I could help.

Your Egeblad is Beautiful!!! I think you're the only one besides me that did the extensions! That really gives me a lift! Thanks!!!

Doesn't it look like a dream after blocking the Hemlock?....ugh...I did a modified pattern but don't know if I wanna knit another one.

Can't wait to see it when you get it blocked!!!

Looks great Libbie even before blocking. what weight yarn did you use and needle size. Just trying to get an idea. would like to make my in-laws a blanket for Christmas using the cascade Eco that I got. so am wondering it it would be big enough to be a blanket. would like it to be at least 5 ft across.

Did start the Alita for them but I think they would like the more intricate pattern of the Egeblad, Might make the Alita for my Brother.

Karina, according to Ravelry the yarn I used is aran weight but I've
never believed it haha It seems thinner than that to me but I guess
yarn weights are a bit hard to pin down exactly. The ball band
suggests size 4mm needles to get 18 sts/ 4". I used size 5 mm
needles because I wanted it to still be quite dense. I think I could
have easily used the next size or two up and still had a nice definition
between the solid bits and the lacy bits. Hopefully I'll be doing some
blocking soon and can let you know how large it blocks out to. It
definitely has a lot of stretch to it!

Mary, I love that you made the extension rounds! It made this
pattern be definitely translateable into a lap blanket. After my
sister in law saw the pics she is wanting me to make a couple in
pink for her two little girls so I'll definitely be using those
extensions again!

I kinda stalled out on this project when the summer heat hit and
just could not knit with a wooly blanket on my lap haha Then when
the weather cooled and I dug it back out, I had sort of lost the
"rhythm" and had a hard time facing those millions of stitches!
I look forward to doing some more now that the weather is cool
and there won't be any need for long breaks so that I lose
motivation!

Libbie

Hey All,
Need to start another blankie... I am almost finished with my lace blanket and ran out of yarn... Should be here on Tuesday!!! I'll post when I get them. It's from a book that Rebecca turned me on to. And believe me it's really really really hard and a challenge.
Been on other projects and work work work. So haven't been here in a bit. All of your projects look so great!

And Mary, I did the extentions too, so your hard work was not wasted!!!
Everyone loves that over the hemlock, but I think that I will always favor the hemlock pattern cause I guess it was my first lace bit project!!!
See you all soon!
