The Big Blanket Project

I've been neglecting my blog due to a very large project I've been working on for the past two and a half months.  It's a custom ordered king size blanket, which I'm doing in pieced together squares like an afghan. I've been keeping a photo journal of the project as I work on it on facebook here: Blanket Project
 Here are some photos of how it looked when I first got started.  The rectangular piece goes in the center.
 
 


 

It's made from mostly wool, with some poodle hair and alpaca.  No two of the squares are alike, and the finished blanket will fit a California king size bed with enough extra to hang down on both sides.. It's now big enough to fit a queen size, so I'm hoping to be finished in another couple of weeks.  Then maybe I'll make one for myself!

I like it. That's a lot of work, I can't imagine wanting to make another one already. Of course, it's beautiful so you'd want to make another.

Thanks. I've never made anything this big before and it is a whole lot of work. But I am getting paid. It came out so nice I hate to let it go, so that's why I want to make another one to keep.

Thanks Alisa. It's now a lot bigger and fits a queen or king size bed. There are more photos on facebook where I've posted it for sale.
