11.06.09: Blocking!

11.05.09: Cast off - just need to weave in the ends & block.

11.03.09: 9th color added (used for border) - Lana Grossa Meilenweit 100 Safari in the Giraffe colorway; originally used for my Zeegers socks.

11.02.09: 8th color added - Knit Picks Felici in the Aquarium colorway, originally used in my Pomatomus socks.

I am now using my 60” cables so I think this is big enough. My next color will probably be for the border.

Speaking of which, for the border, I will do the following, just as I did for my first pinwheel blanket, although I think I will use Jeny’s Surpisingly Stretchy Bind Off this time:
