Finished Hemlock Ring

Hemlock Ring -- blocking

I was pleased with myself that I actually got the wedding gift knitted and blocked days before the wedding! I finished the crocheted bind of (thanks to JulieFrick for the convincing that crocheting was much easier than the crazy knitted bind off in the pattern) on Wednesday evening. Washed and blocked Thursday morning and it was dry in time for bed Thursday night. Folded neatly with a card and delivered Friday morning. Heck the wedding wasn’t till Saturday so I was way ahead of the game.

I can see why so many people are knitting this, it really is a fun knit and gets to be sort of hypnotic.

Hemlock Ring -- the Brooklyn Tweed shot Details: Hemlock Ring throw as detailed by Brooklyn Tweed with help from The Rainey Sisters. Knit with Alpaca with a Twist, Baby Twist in brown using size 8 needles. I used all of one jumbo hank and some of the second. There is still plenty left on the second to make something else. I kept going till there were 75 stitches in each section. It blocked out to about 46″ in diameter. I think now I should have made it bigger, but this way I got it done! Ravtails here.

Details on the wedding tomorrow!

  7. Oooooo, that’s lovely! I can see where “hypnotic” would kick in – for lace, it’s probably a very relaxing knit!
