Hemlock Ring blanket

I am such a bad blogger. Here's le Tour de France over for another year days ago, and have I shown you my Maillot Jaune project - non!

Apologies mes amies, et regardez vous ici. Voila, le Hemlock Ring Blanket.

I used 4 skeins of Cascade 220 in # Kansas from their Heathers range, with 5.5mm needles.

This is the Emily Ocker method of casting on for circular shawls, and it's fab.

Here is the central flower emerging.

I am really pleased with the blanket. The edges are a little frilly which makes for patient blocking, but the end result is well worth all the effort.

I thoroughly enjoyed this year's Tour de France KAL which made the transition from Blogger to Ravelry brilliantly.
