Finished Length: 
7.00 ft
Finished Width: 
5.00 ft
Notes: 

This blanket used pickup sticks to create a double weave that could be unfolded when finished to create a blanket twice the width of the loom. I had a few problems with the shed not opening cleanly so I have some floating threads here and there, but considering the yarn was leftover moth-eaten rug yarn I am really pleased with the results. The fold is still pretty obvious; but I expect it will disappear with some use and washing.
