i am so happy it's finished, i'd hoped to be done before leaving on our trip and i made it with only two days to go! i don't know which i loved more, the knitting or the end result, i love this blanket. jared's pattern was so beautifully written and the design so truly simple to make i'd like to cast on another soon, this time in the recommended fingering weight wool. this pattern was named for the pretty leafy motifs and after american poet walt whitman and his stunning collection of poetry. i still can't believe what two sticks and a ball of yarn can become... it does feel like magic. ravelry notes found here. joining with ginny here.
and now i'd better get busy packing and maybe wind up a bit of yarn for our trip, my sister and i are SO
excited, we're going to alaska! miss you, see you soon! xxx lori
