I Don’t Want to Knit This…

I Don’t Want to Knit This…

But if someone knit it for me, I would be so grateful. How gorgeous is this blanket? Its knit all from sock weight yarn (Knit Picks Palette) and probably takes a century to finish but I love it.

  1. Oh my goodness. According to the project notes on Rav, it has 200 000 stitches! I love big projects but that… is… crazy. If you do find someone to knit it for you, could you ask them to make me one too, please? 😉 It IS rather gorgeous.

    • Yeah when I saw that one of those motifs, done in worsted weight, would be 2 feet across, it really hit me how insane that project it. Because, of course, I wondered if it could be done in a heavier weight to make it faster. It really is nice though, like a piece of art. I would probably ban anyone from using it out of fear that someone would spill on my masterpiece

  2. That is so beautiful! I don’t want to make cable knit tights, but I want someone else to do it for me…having trouble finding someone though.

    • There has to be a knitter out there that would love to do those tights. There should be a knitting exchange network. I love knitting baby items, but don’t have babies. There is probably someone out there who loves knitting tedious sock weight blankets that would trade me.

    • It’s funny actually, the day after I blogged this a lady from my knitting group was asking us if we thought she should do it. She hadn’t seen my post, she just stumbled across it and decided it would make a great wall hanging. I wouldn’t have the patience.
