Whew! That took a while! I've been knitting this particular WIP since January, and I actually hadn't touched it in more than a month (you can see my last progress post here). I've been distracted by our Tokyo trip, finishing up my original design, working on some SALs...etc. But it's all done now, and I get to do my little finishing dance. Here it is:
I just added the fifth strip to the end. This is 50 inches long and 40 inches wide. Not huge, but a great size for a lap blanket or a couch throw. The three strips are knitted with Red Heart's Super Saver in Burgundy and their Super Saver in Cherry Chip. The two strips in between are knitted with their Super Saver in Buff and their Cherry Chip again. I was inspired by a Martha Stewart design you can see here, but I've adapted it a lot to suit the colors I wanted, the yarn, and the size.
Well, there it is! I'm actually going to miss working on this. It was so soothing to just watch TV and let your fingers do exactly the same motion again and again and again... I guess I'll have to find a new knitting project!
Lots of love,
