9-30-16 - gifted… Katie loves it. Expect this will get a lot of use in the car and stroller this winter. and she promised good FO photos!

9-29-16 - done!

8-31-16 - still need to weave in those ends and block!

8-3-16 - finished (except for weaving in ends and blocking). I was disappointed to have to go into a 4th skein of Fossil for the last two rows + bind-off (I think a couple of my skeins weren’t 50g, so maybe that’s why). I had 82 g of the five gray/blues left; my usage for those colors is approximate.

7-29-16 - one more wedge to go!

7-22-16 - finished the first four wedges. love the pattern in this yarn!

7-19-16 - well this is fun to knit! nothing like garter stitch with squishy wool on size 9 needles!

adjusting pattern to use worsted weight. bought blues (in a gradient) with a cream (colorway Fossil) background. cast on 125 stitches and worked first w&t after knitting 119 stitches. planning to follow the rest of the pattern as written. (note: no need to cut color B after working wedge 2)

Color A: snowbound
Color B: fossil
Color C: faded quilt
Color D: flannel
Color E: almanac
Color F: old world
