my first double wide double heddle throw blanket

This is my first finished project of the year. I am destashing (my stash is a joke compared to many people). This is a mix of worsted, lace and fingering yarns. I wanted a looser weave, so I used the 7.5 dent heddle. The width is about 59" and since it was double weave, no seam. I'm thrilled with that.

I am not thrilled with the mistakes I made. Mostly because I didn't even know they were there until it was off of the loom. But now I have a much better idea of what to watch for.

the mossy woods blanket is finished

The next one will be one piece on the loom. I'm still trying to figure that out. I have the article, but I need to try it. :)

This is nearly the last of the acrylic yarn. I'm ready for wool now, I think.
