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:
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.
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.
