In Which I Jump on Another Bandwagon

I'm not quite sure what I started out looking for on Ravelry but I somehow ended up drooling over the Hemlock Ring Blanket - so many people have made or are making it that I figured it was safe to give it a try even though it looks rather intimidating - and its no wonder its so popular - very straightforward knitting and the end product is absolutely gorgeous. Now mine isn't absolutely gorgeous yet - just a puckery flower at the moment, but I am really enjoying it.



I happened to have 2 hanks of the Cascade Eco Wool hanging around - my husband's aunt gave it to me a few years back - so this was another reason I was so excited to start this project.

Also, I saw this at the LYS and had to buy some after touching it - maybe a small scarf or something.



Still working on Juliet and Tree Jacket but they're both at the tedious point where you have to keep doing long rows of the same thing over and over hence the new yarn and new project - gotta keep things fresh!

I LOVE the hemlock. Mine is on about row 56, but I had to rip it out entirely at row 39 and start all over. I was SO SAD. I am using malabrigo for mine. Bring yours to knit night on Tuesday I would love to see it!
