The NeverEnding Blanket has finally come to an end!
It only took 11 skeins of Lion Brand Homespun and about a year! That's 2,035 yards of bulky, more or less. As you can see from the middle, it started out as a Moderne Blanket from the Mason-Dixon book. But my husband kept saying it needed to be bigger, so it would cover all four of us on the couch. (He kept asking me, "Isn't it finished yet?? and I'd tell him, "As far as I'm concerned, it was finished 3 or 4 skeins ago!")
It's final measurements are roughly 60" X 67". I was weaving in ends as I went along and only had about 6 more ends to weave in when I finished it yesterday. No sweat. I don't actually consider something an FO until all ends are woven in and seams are seamed - but that's just for my own stuff.
For the edging, I used the last skein I had and crocheted a slip stitch all the way around then the next round I single crocheted through the front loop only, then kept single crocheting (through both loops) around and around until I ran out (stopping at a corner).
It's not as misshapen as it looks but when a six year old offers to help you straighten it out, you can't really expect actually straightness.
It's super warm and ways easily 10 pounds! And it's nice and stretchy, too! And the boys like it.
Feeling toasty, Ruth!
