Here is the Ties that Bind pattern blanket. It looks a little loose right now because the yarn is a heavily oiled industrial one. When the oil is washed out the yarn will plump right up and look perfect.
Over the last year my health has not been very good and I have had to accept that the complex lace pieces I used to so enjoy have got too difficult. So I am delighted to find easy patterns like this one that I can still enjoy knitting!
