I completed Square C of my Cornerstone Blanket at the end of last week:
I’m working on Square D now, the 4th of 6 squares.
Thanks to everyone (including Cornerstone Blanket designer Kay) who weighed in on the softness of Silk Garden post-washing in the comments. Apparently it does soften up quite a bit after washing. Go figure! I’m happy to hear this, and I’m very much looking forward to washing and blocking my blanket to see how it is transformed.
American Lamb is a bulky weight 100% lambswool. It has 146 yards per 3.5 oz skein. It’s lovely and soft and would be great for whipping up a big cozy scarf or a fast hat.Pictured above, the “Blue Moon” colorway on top, and the “Fog” colorway on the bottom

The company very nicely sent me two skeins to try out. I’m going to keep one and knit a fast hat from it, and give away the other. I’m keeping Blue Moon and am offering Fog (a great color for a guy hat!) in a giveaway.
If you’d like to win my skein of American Lamb bulky wool in the “Fog” colorway, leave a comment on this blog post by noon Eastern time on Wednesday, January 16, 2013. A name will be drawn at random to give away the skein.
I took this photo with my phone the other night. Not the greatest quality picture, but too cute not to share:
