I've finished it yesterday, after a 3 hour weaving in ends session and of course sewing the corners. But it was raining all day so I coulnd't take a picture.
Here are the stats:
pattern: Pat Ashforth and Steven Plummer from Assign Publications
yarn:Endless summer - Connemara - mercerized cotton (elann.com)
green: 18 balls (1638 yds)
lilac: 6 1/4 balls (569 yds)
blue: 6 1/4 balls (569 yds)
I had a few yards left over from the green and wanted to use it for the corners but I couldn't find it anymore. I had, thankfully left long ends and could use them to sew the corners together.
needles: 4.5 mm
size: 52" X 52"
start: June 2, 2006 finish: July 12, 2006 (but with many side projects in between)
Until the 9th square it seemed like I'll have some yarn left over. After that it was slow going, the blanket was (and still is) very heafy on the lap. I would not make this blanket with mercerized cotton anymore. This is a very clever and fun pattern. Mariella at Knitting Nonni (please see side bar, since blogger doesn't let me make a link right now) is making another one. She's using lovely colors (Cranberry, misty blue and rainbow) and I'm looking forward to see her "Curve of Pursuit" come along.
For those who would like to purchase the pattern here is the Assign Storefront at e-bay (thanks to Mariella). It's called Assign Designs and they are on vacation right now. They will be open in mid August again:
