Finally finished!

I've been knitting this blanket for absolutely ages.
I had far too much of this Shadow Tweed yarn from Australian Country Spinners and while it's an interesting yarn I was well over it, well I certainly am now!
Lorraine at Woolybutt has been collecting squares for blankets to send up to Marysville for the fire victims, and as it's August I thought I'd better finish it.
The blanket is knitted in one piece and I picked up, increased and decreased down the centre diagonal of each square, so it's not in any particular sequence and has a really appealing effect.
I hope it finds a good home.

Hey, I really like that blanket. The design is so structural and the contrast with the subtle colour changes is great. I too hope it finds a good home.

It is certain to keep some lucky person nice and warm.

What a beautiful blanket. Whoever receives it sure is lucky! Mammoth effort - well done.
