So close to being done with this blanket! All I have left to do is the edging. Everything else is done, pieced together, and ends woven in. I just can’t decide if I want to do the edging in cream or in one of the colors….I am leaning towards color. The pattern is Mitered Cross Blanket for Japan by Kay Gardiner (Mason Dixon Knitting). I LOVE this blanket. I did it in Noro Silk Garden yarn in a variety of color ways, so soft and squishy and color to die for. It was portable and easy knitting which was perfect for baseball practice, softball practice, waiting to pick the kids up after school, etc. My favorite thing about knitting this was the quilt like construction and the way the yarn changes colors. It was really fun to see what color comes next and how they would work together with the mitered corners. I love Noro yarns, but you just have to have the right projects…they don’t work for everything, but this pattern is made for this yarn.
For now I am happy snuggling up with my almost finished blanket and admiring the colors while I figure out the border. You can find my revelry page for this project here.
