final f.o. of 2022

I did manage one final finished object in 2022:

Campfire Cozy

This is Mum’s Campfire Cozy, an Espace Tricot pattern. It took over a year to make and may have been gifted for both last Christmas and this year’s. The pattern is great and it makes a ginormous, blanket-sized shawl.

I didn’t take measurements, but it’s huge. Probably 9.5-10 feet long and 3.5-4 feet deep. I had to block it folded down the center seam at my parents’ house because I didn’t have enough space anywhere else.

The yarn is Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd’s Wool Worsted, a favorite of mine. It took 8.5 skeins, so a little more than 2000 yards. I used a U.S. 10 (6 mm) circular needle.

We’re both very happy it’s done!
