Who can resist the lush spectrum of this blanket from Knitty.com? I was swept away by the beautiful photo illustration and knew I had to try my hand at those jeweled squares. My interpretation is knit in mercerized cotton, which holds dye with lustrous intensity. So far I’ve found satisfying colors by Millefili fine and Saucy Sport by Reynolds Yarns. The original was made up with variegated Kureyon wool dyed in different color-ways.
The digital camera is on its way home via FedEx, so I’ll be able to post progress with more ease over the weekend. I’m looking forward to the immediate gratification of shoot, review, and blog!
