Finished the blanket!

I finally sewed the dang blanket together.

 

And ...



I LOVE IT!



I have been carting it up and down the stairs because it is just as good a cuddle-up-on-the-couch blanket as it is a bed blanket. 


And I actually miss knitting it.  It was my eternal project. 


 Maybe this means I will make another?  Or perhaps I'll fulfill my husband's wishes and add another strip or two to make it king-sized. 


I'm not promising anything, but it is possible this is not my last Lizard Ridge

      What a beautiful blanket! I'm not much of a knitter myself. A friend passed on your information because of your beautiful projects but also because you are living in Georgia! I married an exceptionally lovely Georgian man a couple of years ago and will probably live in Georgia sometime in the future. I was wondering if you could write on your blog or to my email a bit about your life in Georgia? Thank you, Mary

  10. I have had quite a few "eternal projects" and there is something comforting about them, and it's always strange to finish them! But dang, this is a gorgeous blanket! You'll just have to start a new "eternal project."

    (Seriously, what am I going to do when I finish Les Miserables? I only have 500 pages left! I'll have to start War and Peace ... )

  11. What a beautiful blanket. Fabulous colours and I love the modular aspect of it so that you can keep on adding to it if you really want. Sometimes long-term projects lose their shine as our interests change so it is great that you are so pleased with the result and love it so. How satisfying for you and you have proven that even though something still isn't finished after 4 years, that is no reason to give up on it for you have a stunningly beautiful result.
