colorblocking.

So I didn’t cast on another Turnstile right away. Still thinking about the next color combination, and I also realized that I should really get working on some wedding knitting. (Some folks have been patiently waiting for longer than I care to admit, and others have no idea a wedding blanket is in the works.) Anyway, I came across the Colorblock Bias Blanket by Purl Soho, and decided that this might be a great candidate for a wedding blanket. (I do love the pinwheel, but I’m looking to mix it up.)

I’m knitting it out of greys and greenish turquoisey shades.

I’m not following the yardage estimates for the pattern. Instead, I’m using what I’ve got as a guide, and hoping the size of each colorblock feels right.

I’m so pleased with how it is turning out.

I like this so much that I might want to keep it — but it is going to be a gift.

I even brought it to the porch yesterday to work on with my coffee.

And this guy. Just had to show you this napping pose. That ear! I love it. Happy Friday!
