Kitty shown for scale...

and also b/c he wouldn't get off the blanket.
Mitered Square Blanket
i finally finished the mitered square blanket. pattern is from mason-dixon knitting. 21 skeins of elann sonata on #6 denise circs. i made a baby blanket with no border. if i ever give the blanket away, i will probably back it with flannel.

i machine washed and dried the blanket and i am happy with the results.
Mitered Square Blanket
i had plenty of leftover cotton and i needed a mindless project, so i made a summertime tunic from IK summer 2007.
Summertime tunic
i used 19 different colors and knit the 33.5" size on #6 and #4 knitpicks options.
Summertime tunic
i shortened the body by an inch but otherwise knit it as written. i haven't washed this one yet but i'm really happy with how it came out. it couldn't have been any easier to knit.

  3. That tunic turned out amazing! I'm anxiously awaiting it to be warm enough to wear mine. Never would have thought to do it in stripes but it looks so fantastic!

  8. Beautiful blanket... and cat-approved, which means you did it right.

    I really, really love the way the tunic came out. It's such a fun summer top, love all the stripes (and admire you for weaving in all those ends...).
