The rainbow Wooleater blanket is finished. I admit, this pattern became somthing of an obsession. I can safely say I have satisfied my wooleater urges now!
This was started on 7th March and finished today, 2nd May. I've been working on it on and off in the evenings. It measures approximately 1m x 1m and was crocheted with a 3.5mm hook.
It is made using Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. I love this yarn, but it is so expensive now. This blanket uses up A LOT of yarn (hence the name). It weighs in at 553g - so 11 balls worth of yarn. I am lucky to have a stash of Baby Cashmerino made up of yarn I have picked up in the sales and oddment left overs from other blankets . I did end up having to buy a little more cream and one ball of blue. The green yarn was kindly gifted to me from a fellow Raveller, in return for a p/hop donation.
The result is exactly what I wanted, and the above photo shows where it is staying for the time being, hung on the end of the cot, patiently waiting for Baby H. I can't bring myself to gift this. This is the reverse, nearly as pretty as the front, I've even managed to sew in the end!
