This is the back. I am in the middle of the armhole. Once that is completed, there are only 4 rows before binding off. This is going so much quicker than expected. I did shorten the length by 2 inches. I already have a tunic length cardigan and wanted this one to hit me mid hip.
I gave you a little help. This is being knit with Cascade Anthem yarn in worsted weight. I had never used this yarn before. My friend in Las Vegas suggested it as she has used it for garments before. It is quite easy to work with and has a lovely feel to it as it slides through my fingers. It is an acrylic but does not have a plastic feel at all. Well, at least to me it doesn't.
This is a Giant Granny Square blanket in the makings. Our YOP member Sam, has made these in the past and I have always loved the looks of them. It is a great stash buster too. This one is being made with my DK yarn. I may run out of some of the colors and that will be a very good thing. As the colors run out I will just move on to the next color in the color cycle I have chosen. I have over 7000 yards of DK yarn that has been sitting in my stash for YEARS! Since I want this to be large enough to cover my king sized bed, my hope is it will use up almost all of that stash yarn.
