Finished at last!!!!

The "Mitered Crosses" blanket ( pattern available as a PDF download for a donation to help with the Japanese Tsunami victims) is finished! I used all wool and silk for this blanket. It is put together with whip stitch since it was worked in garter stitch. Then I added extra horizontal bands of garter stitch in the back ground yarn (lavender). Edges were lavender crochet, single then double. Ending with a single crochet row of the variegated Silk Garden ( by NORO) and a double crochet edge of worsted weight hand-dyed by Brown Sheep Company.

Here is a view of the blanket showing the beautiful crosses made from the "Silk Garden" skeins!

This was the most fun thing I have ever knitted! It is going as a gift to my BIL and SIL for their birthdays.....I may have to knit another one!
