And it's huge! How huge you ask? Well here it it with 8 year old Duncan lying on it!
It ended up being most of 12 balls of Paton's Soft Haze in all so it weighs in at a little under 600g. I know that people poo-poo acrylic but knitting something that big in wool would just get completely unmanageable in one piece. The acrylic component makes it so much lighter but still warm and snuggly.
Damn it, let's look at another photo shall we? Minus the child this time.
The blocking was more or less successful although there is some edge roll as you can see. I don't really care though, this is an item for snuggling under not laying out on the floor. I can barely wait for it to get cold enough to use it properly!
So I have achieved something these holidays - one big arse, huge, fluffy blanky!
