Charity Blanket for Fort Mac

I finally finished my charity blanket that will be sent to Fort Mac Murray for the fire victims.

Hope it helps someone.

It is a garter stitch variation of the 10 stitch afghan.  I used 15 stitches with chunky yarn and worsted weight yarn doubled.  The blanket is worked from the centre out in a spiral working on only 15 stitches.   It is thick and warm.  It was quite fun and quick to do,  I think I may do this pattern again because it is a great stash buster.  Everyone knows that when you use up a ball of yarn you can go out and buy more!!!

I have also started the Maple Leaf Shawl pattern that I got in Quelph last month.  It is done on 4mm needles with Misty Alpaca yarn( alpaca,merino and silk).
This is a progress photo.  I will post more pictures when I get more done.  Hopefully this weekend.

Have a great weekend!!
