Bind-off blues

Ravelry_hemlockring3

So near, and yet so far! Casting off a large project can be a uniquely frustrating process. There’s only one more row to go, but there’s a good chance that row will take forever. In this case I’m three hours in and barely halfway through, but the finished effect is definitely worth the effort.

My Hemlock Ring Blanket has ended up with a contrasting colour for the cast-off-that-never-ends, partly as a design feature, but mostly out of necessity. Despite doing a bunch of maths before I started – with a calculator and everything! – I ran out of yarn.

Still, I like the way the blue brings out the best in the green, raising it from a sludgy moss colour to something a bit more summery. Three more hours and this little blanket will finally be off the needles…
