I hope she likes it........it is knitted in: Rowanspun DK (100% Pure New Wool) in shade 739 - which is a tweedy blue, just over 4 skeins (200g). Knitted on Clover Circs 4.5mm. The Hoover Blanket.
Anything I wouldn't do again? Yes, I wouldn't add the additional rows in the border as recommended, as it made mine a bit frilly - but that could be my knitting ;-). And I still can't get my head around this blocking business!!!
But all in all, it is soft, warm, cosy and I would definitely knit it again.
