Needles: US 8 (5.0mm) 24″ Addi Turbo Circular
Six weeks of marathon knitting, seaming, and crochetting later, the blanket is done.
A few notes on the project. I alternated skeins in each block, rather than the ends of one skein. I mattress stitched the entire thing together. When it came to the edging I dropped a hook size so I could single crochet around the edge and not have to guess where I put the hook. This resulted in a slight ruffle that went away when the blanket was blocked. There are plans to back the afghan this fall. Despite the pretty looks it has, it is made out of Kureyon and is bloody uncomfortable to cuddle with.
