A very EZ blanket is flying off the needles. EZ blanket as in Elizabeth Zimmerman's knitted garter stitch blanket from her Fall 1962 newsletter #9. I've said it before and will keep saying it - get thee a copy of The Opinionated Knitter!
The stash yielded this discontinued Manos del Uruguay 700 tex which is a hand spun wool. Although not as bulky as EZ's original in Sheepsdown, this is working up quite well on a size 13 needle.
All that I'm hoping for is a television watching cuddly blanket. I don't need a cover the whole bed and live through a deep freeze type of blanket. However, all of the lovely slipped stitches along the edges have me thinking of adding on a border of some type.
Perhaps knitting it on sideways in a "big chunky holes" style would be nice. Or perhaps a crochet style will jump up and say "pick me!" But for right now, simple garter with a change of direction is a nice relaxation from the little bitty gauge of the Fall jacket.
