I'm Done!!! ~ posted by guest blogger Andee




I'm done!!! I finished my Leaves up last night. I just loved how the Beaverslide yarn blocked.  It got so soft after a good soak and I am thrilled with it.

I was hoping to do a better photo shoot of it, but both of my boys have colds so we'll be sticking close to home today.  As I take more pictures of it I'll post them on my blog and Ravelry.

I really enjoyed this KAL so much. It was the first time I ever did a KAL. For all of you who haven't started yet or think your Leaves is never going to get done.. I encourage you to keep going! It is hard to see what a treasure this pattern is while it is on the needles, but as soon as it comes off Presto! It is so impressive.

This project got me through... my 4 year old nieces brain surgery, 2 and half seasons of Downton Abbey, my dog's surgery, playoff football, the Super Bowl, waiting for the bus, countless episodes of Dr. Pole, and maybe a few other movies :)  

Happy Knitting and I hope there is another KAL in the future!

  1. I wish I could see it up close, I'll bet with that mohair it's got a halo haze glow to it. It's a beautiful blanket. Where will it be put? It was good getting to know you,thanks for KALing with us.

    1. I am trying to figure that out. I bought 5 skeins. I have one and a half left. I was going to check my recite to make sure I didn't get 6.
