One More Row…

And when one more row is approximately 800 stitches, it take a little time :)

Noro Star Blanket 

This was intended to be a knit that kept me going through the Stanley Cup playoffs… but *ahem* They haven’t even started yet… and I am nearly finished.  I guess you could say I got addicted to knitting this blanket.  Noro totally has that effect on me.  I just want to see how the next color will come out of the ball and how it will work with the exciting fabric.

Noro Star Blanket 

I started the NINTH ball last night – out of ten.  So, at this rate, I will be finished by the end of the week.  And even if it is nearly 90 degrees outside (seriously, wasn’t there still snow on the ground one month ago?), I am loving knitting this warm blanket. 

I did some knit math to estimate how big she’s gonna be – and while she won’t be a huge bedspread-type blanket, she will be a decently sized lap blanket.  I can’t wait to see how the star points come out once I bind off.

    Your yarn cakes remind me of everlasting gob-stoppers. They too have the same effect…can’t stop…gotta find out the next flavor!

    Can’t wait to see the finished blanket. I’m sure it’s going to be absolutely gorgeous.

    800 stitches sounds v.heavy going.
    Your blanket is looking really great – can’t wait to see it finished.

    Oh! I’m totally with you on the “can’t wait to see how it comes out” thing! The on-the-needles glimps we see are gorgeous – and so are your pics of the yarn balls!

    Those colors are precious. Sort of autumn-y in nature, but bright enough for spring. Definitely loving it! And 800 stitches?!? More power to ya sister.

    Seriously, stop making me drool. Those shots of Noro are killing me… it makes me want to order piles and piles of it right now!

    I’m also thinking about knitting a blanket, which seems silly heading into summer, but I feel like it’s something I could really use in my place. Can’t wait to see how this one turns out!

    What glorious colors, Lolly!
    I’ve been grumpy about the boring edging on a shawl I am trying to finish, but I have only about 500 st per row. I shouldn’t complain!

  22. Laurie

  23. Wendolene

    What gorgeous colors–I can see how you got addicted! Now I want to crack out my own little skein of Taiyo.

  24. elaine

    LOVELY! Beautiful! I’ve never tried a project that big; I don’t think I have the patience. (I’m a big fan of 3 mos. size baby sweaters.)
