YDC knitting project

well, I have been home for a couple of weeks now. The poor rabbit is still as unfinished as ever. BUT I have completed a piece of knitting that was auctioned off for charity a few months ago. The auction was for me to knit something the winner chose. Of course I had in mind something like a jumper - nice and easy to follow a pattern. Well, I was given a challenge: to knit a blanket. Size anything from a lap blanket upwards in autumn colours, but not really with pictures. A lap blanket it turned out to be. I had a stylised landscape in mind and even if I say so myself I think it has turned out well. Let's hope the winner thinks so too. I did have to leave it from time to time when the weather got too hot. It is not much fun knitting with sweaty hands.
