A blanket for cold winter nights

This knit up in only two evenings – how could it not, on US 50 needles?!

Pattern:  Camellia Fiber Co. Merino Wool Blanket (really just a simple K2 P2 ribbing)

Needles:  US 50s

Blocking is essential!  It helps the yarn (which is really more like roving) felt together, just a little bit, to keep the stitches firmly locked together.  I don’t imagine that this blanket would take any kind of hard use, but it sure is beautiful!
