Unfinished, it's been sitting in a cupboard along with the bag of delicious Zara wool, which makes up the rug apart from the white bits (more on that later). When we moved in to the 33rd house, I thought it would be better to bring the blanket out in to the living room - this way, I could do a couple of rows at a time, without the big push that usually brings on a cramping hand.
Oh and the white? It's one I had already from Bendigo Woollen Mills. It's nice of its own accord, however it is very different from the Zara wool and will wear differently. I definitely won't combine different wools again, but I was too far in to this project before I realised my error. Whilst the Zara wool was expensive, it is absolutely beautiful and I would love to use it again for such a special blanket.
