I love the front,
I love the back,
I love the fact that it is 9 natural sheepy colours and matches my cats.
I love the way it looks hanging over the back of my rocking chair.
I knit the pattern pretty much as written, although I didn't pick up as many stitches for the border - a ratio of one to one, which is what the pattern called for given many people a wavy border, so I followed my feeling and picked up fewer stitches. It came out quite well. The other thing I did was not purling the border. the method i used was not perfect, and if I was to do it again I would certainly try a different method.
This took me a month of continuous, monogamous knitting and I loved every stitch of it. I love Kate Davies' designs, her attention to detail and eye for colour and this blanket has only deepened my love for her and her design aesthetic.
