Op Art Blanket - Completed!

This blanket has been a long time in the works.  I believe I ordered the yarn last February from Knit Picks.  I had to do a second order of yarn to accommodate the multi colour stripe pattern.  I've been working on it on and off for months on end knitting obsessively for periods and then tucking it away because I just couldn't take any more of the monotony.  All in all I'm so glad I finished it because it is beautiful and Jack loves snuggling up with a blanket.
In progress a few weeks ago!
Jack finally getting to snuggle up on my lap with it this morning :). He loves cotton blankets like I do so we are both loving the cotton-linen blend that keeps us cool temperature and has a soft yarn feel.

I haven't blocked it yet but I will this week so it has a nice even square shape to it. For the moment I am

Thanks for stopping by and enjoying another post about our Happily Hectic Household!
