I promised an update of my Girasole blanket (pattern by Jared Flood) to many of you, and I can finally show you the finished product. I honestly thought I would be finished with this about a week sooner than I actually was, but the darn lace edging took me forever!
It is a great pattern and if you don't have it already, I highly recommend it. I know a few of you have already bought it and I would love to see your progress along the way!
Because it is knit in a worsted weight yarn, the blanket knits up fairly fast (well, except of course for the lace edging, but we already discussed that!). The end result is truly magnificent. I have never been so impressed with something I have knit myself. Measuring in at over 6 feet in diameter, it really is a remarkable piece.
