Finished object: Wietse's Wolhemel Blanket

Yesterday I finished the 12th block that I needed for Wietse's blanket. I also made a start with the border, which I finished today. It needs to be blocked still, but the result is very nice so far. Wietse curled himself into his new blanket after I made the photos...
Start date: Oct 1-2008...finish: Jan 22-2009. I used 7 balls Cascade 220 Superwash to make this blanket, and 12 block patterns out of the Wolhemel Groninger Blanket KAL.

i am truly impressed. you are a knitting machine.

how many squares did you complete during the ufo kal? i need a percentage so you can get some entries.

Five squares were done in January 5/12 part of the blanket.
Plus the border of course... which took 200 yards to knit. In percentage I guess a total of 40% was knit in January to finish the blanket.
Hope it helps :-)
