Not happy with my Block Island merino as a crocheted piece--it was too stiff--I ordered some huge knitting needles and got to work. In two days, I had my small lap blanket all done, reminding Mama and me of the steely blue colors of our Block Island vacation. And the knit stitches and variegated sections remind us of the waves, sky, hills, and rock walls.
My Block Island Blanket
50mm circular knitting needles
160 yds super chunky merino yarn
Cast on 30 stitches. Knit the entire skein, stopping when you have 4-6x the length of a row leftover. Bind off.
