I can hardly believe that this post is actually happening! It's a finished Hemlock Ring Blanket, people!!!!

I started the HRB in November, when I took a workshop at The Point. It was just the sort of class that I needed to push me to try something new. Until now, I had never knit lace from a chart. Or really knit any kind of lace at all! I used a massive credit to purchase two (two!) bags of Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran, which may be the most luxurious purchase I've ever made! It was so worth it, though. The blanket is so soft and just the loveliest shade of grey.

And now it's done. And I accomplished something I never thought I would. I am feeling pretty good about this one. Yep, I sure am.

In other news, there have been some changes in my esty shop and over on ravelry. All of the patterns that I designed for The Point over the years are now for sale by me. Check it out.
