It's crept up on us very quickly but Wonderwool is next weekend!
The blanket is finished (you'll be able to see it in the shop window over the next few days) and I've almost finished writing up the pattern. The blanket takes 12 hanks of West Yorkshire Spinners Wensleydale Yarn. We used four each of Wensleydale Gems in Jadeite and Amazonite together with four hanks of Wensleydale Fleece in Ecru for our green, blue and cream version. The blanket matches our shop livery really well but we will have lots of other colourways to choose from at the show if green and blue just aren't your style. Our version costs £90 and until the end of May 2018 the price includes the pattern booklet. (If knitted in three colours of Gems then the price is £102). The yarn and pattern will be added to our website after Wonderwool (if you would like to pre-order and collect from the show then contact us on 01443 520200 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
We've really enjoyed the process of designing and creating the blanket and exploring different techniques and methods of construction -- we hope you do too.
