The start of something big

Nothing screams spring like a big wooly blanket.
The pattern was popularized by Brooklyn Tweed, but is one of Elizabeth Zimmerman's simple masterpieces. [Ravelry Link]

I figure this project will stall through the summer, but I really wanted to get it started. I like the yarn, it is Cascade Ecological Wool and I am hoping I over bought by a ton so I have enough for a sweater. The blanket is made up of 4 pieces. Two small and two large. I have one of the smaller pieces complete and have started one of the larger pieces. Nice mindless knitting to keep my hands occupied during the hockey playoffs. Lets go Pens!
