I See Camels

... or at least, the spirits of camels! After a month of knitting, this is finally done: a blanket made of camel down. The pattern and yarn were my February shipment of the Bare Naked Knitspot yarn club, wherein we receive undyed and unique fibers of all types. February was camel! And the yarn came via the Snow Leopard Trust, spun by women in Mongolia. You can buy your own here: Snow Leopard Trust.

I bartered for an extra skein and added a repeat on for more width. Unblocked, it is 36" wide x 48" long. I love it. Unfortunately, so does one of the cats... I can't keep her off it. I love that the color changes remind me that several camels contributed to this effort.
