Hemlocked


Rav It


Since the first day I saw this pattern I KNEW I had to knit it. At least once.

It was originally part of the Christmas plan, but it was set aside for more immediate gifts. Instead it will be a gift for my homestay in Argentina (oh yes, we still need to discuss this, don't we?)

Jared Flood's Hemlock Ring is simply irresistible. Just look at the numbers! 2218?! Baaah. I'm proud to follow the flock on this one. It has been a joy to knit, so much in fact that when I cast on Christmas night (after 3 months of Christmas knitting, I was so excited to do something that wasn't on a list) I knit the first two thirds of it in about a week, which wreaked havoc on my right arm. I'm finally picking it back up again and slowly working my way through the last 9 rounds (440+ stitches a piece) and then I'll have to block it. I've never blocked something like this, so it'll definitely be a learning experience!

Okay, that is totally cool but it looks totally HARD! Wow!

And Argentina? I'm waiting to hear about that one. :)

Is really lovely.
Best wishes from Argentina.

Sweet! It looks like it's working up wonderfully.

I want to make that as well, but I wish I could figure out how to make it square as you work out past the initial motif. I'm not one for round blankets. Better heads than mine can probably suss it out.

BettyJo, it's posted! And thanks:)

Thanks Andrea!

Tina, I feel like it can't be that complicated, and yet I would have to actually try and do it to figure out how... Maybe someone will do that!
