Hemlock Ring - FO

At last, at last the Hemlock Ring Blanket is finished. Totally done. Blocked. In my lap as I write this post. I have read about this a few times, but it is astonishing how different the size, texture, and appearance of the blanket looks after blocking. Here's a picture of the blocking. I blocked it on a queen-size mattress and it still was a little too large for that area. There were a few scallops hanging over the side of the mattress.
Here's a close-up of the center, pins still in place.
Two views after dried and pins removed.
Lacy and beautiful!!!
Also, here's an update on the intarsia project. Christmas stocking . . .Santas done, tops of Christmas trees on the horizon.
We're looking forward to Melissa and Dow's wedding this weekend. Many friends and family will be here. I know we'll have a great weekend helping them celebrate!!

Even though I've only blocked two pieces, the change never ceases to amaze me! It's gorgeous!!
