That looks absolutely fabulous!!!! I have only recently started knitting far more. And actually finishing stuff, that is cos I am making socks. Small enough to be achievable, large enough to be challenging. That is because I am going from simple toe up st st, to adding fancy pants stitches, and experimenting with different plies, needles, stitches, guages. It is lucky there are so many feet in our family because I will find a foot to match anything I make. Christmas will be all about stockings this year...
Might have to build up to another clever blanket too with this lovely Noro creation...(I ammaking one with diagonally knitted squares, using DMC tapestry wool, expensive but it makes for a wider range of colours...)
Hugs, and thank you for skiting this off, Jasmine

Absolutely gorgeous. I love that idea of weaving in a contrasting color in the reverse stockinette! I'm currently working on a double knit scarf with a slightly fuzzy yarn on one side and a silk on the other (from silk hankies). When the yarns reverse, so the silk shows on the fuzzy wool side it makes a lovely contrast.
