words fail me
... really, what can I say? The colours are tremendous. Words completely fail me. And that turquoise! That's what made me buy this yarn in the first place. The turquoise and the indigo peeking out in the skeins.
I've knitted the first skein, and plan to knit two more. Based on what I've got now - 84 sts with bulky yarn on 6mm needles - I expect the blanket will finish at about 28 x 36". The pattern calls for an intricate knitted border to be added to the main blanket panel, but I might just leave it as is. Simple, unfussy and incredible.
