My handspun throw blanket and love of Japanese aesthetics

One of the many things I love about Japanese aesthetics is their use of natural materials in their homes. I spun this yarn in a rustic manner, from a gray Romney and black Blue Faced Leicester/ Lincoln fleece. I then knit it on large circular needles. It is folded in half and then over again in the photo, so you are actually seeing 1/4 of it's true size.It will cover an average adult. I also have an affinity for Mid-century modern furniture and have quite a bit of it in my house.
