FO Friday - 2/17/2012

I finished the basketweave blanket last month, and have been waiting for a sunny day for a shot of it.  I did take a picture of it with my phone while we were in Florida; so, it will have to do:

The pattern is modified from the Basketweave Blanket by Classic Elite, in their #9081 Puddle Jumpers booklet. I don't have the booklet...I reverse engineered the pattern - I don't know what numbers they used, but it looks close enough to me.  I used size 4.5mm needles and Caron Wintuk yarn in Fisherman.  It took 5 skeins of it.  I remember this yarn from long ago.  I am so glad we have yarns these days that are easier on the hands.

Off to knit...maybe, I'll have something finished to show you next week. 

MK out.

Pretty blanket. Looks like a good job of figuring out the pattern.
