On It's Way Again

The blanket made it's way to the post office this morning so it should be heading east to Ren, the next knitter. Newlywed life isn't any less busy than pre-wedding life, I'm not entirely sure why I expected that it would be, but I apologize for the amount of time the blanket spent with me. Figuring out how to work with what was already there was a little trickier than I expected. The blanket is awesome folks, but I couldn't get it to fit in a photo, even on my giant couch, so here's the best that I could do:

Everything, Squinched.

I had to squinch up the top square, with it's stripes and bobbles, it's somewhere between 2 and 3 times as long as it looks.

My square:

Folded Up!

Was knit with Debbie Bliss Rialto, 100% superwash merino on size 6 clover circular needles. I decided to make it mirror itself so I reversed the cables in the middle of the blue stripe, after leaving out what would have been a crossing. It is squidgey and soft.
