It feels like a very long time ago when we started our Galway Blanket journey.
It’s an even longer time to keep a secret!
Since May 2023 we have been slowly revealing the individual squares to club members BUT they haven’t seen the final blanket yet! With each new set of blanket square reveals knitters have been picking their favourite squares and planning their blanket layouts.
This is such a fun part of the process!
Every blanket will be unique. Every knitter uses the same building blocks, but each knitter chooses how these go together to create their own dream blanket. In fact, one knitter even said that it was her favourite club ever with us!
But now, you all get to share in the club members’ excitement as we’ve got our first reveal of the final blanket:
Pictured above is the smaller, 12 square lap blanket. It features each of the 12 different squares designed and knit by Carol, Laura and Eimear. You may even be able to spot each of our different styles!
Each designer has definite stitch pattern preferences. These really shine through when you see the finished blanket.
Carol favours intertwining cables. Laura is a big fan of delicate twisted stitch cables and Eimear leans towards symmetric, balanced cables.
For knitters of the full size blanket, you can pick which of the squares you will repeat. Will you add extra of your favourite squares? Will you add more textured squares? Or maybe you’ll just pick a few favourites and stripe them in your blanket?
Win our Galway Blanket
Yes, you read that right. You could win the very blanket pictured above.
Now that the full blanket is revealed, we want to include one final donation for the Jigsaw charity. The lap blanket that Carol, Eimear and Laura knit is being raffled and all profits will go to the charity.
Each ticket costs 5 euro and we will draw our winner on Instagram Live at 2.30 Irish time on Thursday the 27th of July.
Galway Club – Extra Memberships
When our Galway Club first went up for sale, the yarn sold out so quickly that a lot of you were very disappointed. Due to the nature of this project and how the sheep are limited in number, we did our best and chatted with all involved.
We had the chance to add a new order with the mill, and that yarn has now arrived!
Why am I telling you this?
There was some extra after our pre-sale orders were fulfilled, so we are now able to make that available to you while stocks last!
If you want to get hold of the full video workshops, blanket pattern, enough Gaillimh yarn for your choice of blanket size AND join our Knithub chat forum and catch all those club live replays, now is your chance!
Pop on over here, but once these memberships are gone, they are gone:
This club has been so popular that only a few full club options remain, so we thought we would also open up a digital option.
This will give you the full blanket pattern with all 12 squares, step-by-step videos on working each of those squares and access to our exclusive Galway Blanket KnitHub forum. You’ll also have access to our designer recordings as we chat through these squares, along with all of our personal tips for this project.
