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.

  2. Thank you. Weaving goes so fast. I honestly think I am the world's slowest knitter. I'm not in a hurry, but a person only has so much time! :)
