You can click the pics for a better view, and yes, I'm sure you can find some dog hairs, they are everywhere!
Edit: Micaelarauch left a comment and wanted to know how I got this defined ridge. There are several ways to do the decreases. I wanted to have a most visible ridge so I ended up with doing : slip 2, knit 1, pass 2 slipped stitches over.
Yesterday afternoon, the sun came out and I was on the move with my blanky. Let me tell you, this wool blanket soaked the sun right up and even as I was walking back inside with it, it gave back the heat - wonderful. Of course now it's going to be too warm to use it, but the next winter will be back for sure. So here are the specifics:
yarn: Noro Kureyon in the colores # 150 (17balls) and # 126 (15 1/2 balls)
for the border: Patons Classic Wool Merino , 4 times 100g balls of Old Gold (# 204)
size: 53 x 87"
start: April 2006
finish: March 26, 2007
As an knitting addict I had to have a quick fix, and that's why I had to cast on for this Traveller's Stocking from the book (I told you I would knit from the books I have) "Knitting on the Road" by Nancy Bush. I've finished the first stocking last night. Hannah's "Shetland Shawl turned Vest" is on hold until I get the right needles or until I finished the second sock, whichever comes first. ;o)
