Another Caernarfon Welsh Blanket

Valerie wove a second blanket in the Caernarfon pattern, again using the Garnhuset 6/2 wool.

This one was set at 8 ends per inch, per layer, and again, beaten on an open shed to cut down on the abrasion.  Again, this was the 6/2 Garnhuset.  Because of the more open sett the patterns are larger, but there are fewer pattern repeats.
