I have finally finished the blanket I have been knitting since January. It is a present for a friends 30th birthday later in the year.

It is all moss stitch and each stripe is a whole ball of yarn. The yarn is Jaeger Matchmaker that I picked up in a charity shop for a bargain price. I love these colours, especially the purple, there is quite a lot of yarn left so I can make something for myself too.

Sorry about the spot in this photo, my camera keeps doing funny things. The blanket measure about 110cm wide and 150cm long and feels lovely, I think it looks quite good too!

I am so pleased with the finished blanket, and really enjoyed making it, that I am going to start another one, this time for me. I have some pink Debbie Bliss yarn that will go with the spare room, especially if I put my pink retro bedding on the bed.


  1. Oh my goodnes, what an amazing friend you are she must be! It is beautifully knitted, so smooth and straight, wow!

  2. I love this - your friend is very lucky indeed!!
