Notes

Group knitting project with my sister and sister-in-law. Using Shine Sport and following the afghan-size pattern pretty much as written. Rows of 273 stitches take a long time!

MC = white
CC1 = french blue
CC2 = hydrangea
CC3 = sky
CC4 = wisteria
CC5 = clarity

finished size ~ 49”x56” and we had bits of the contrast colors and a whole ball of the white leftover. it was a lot of work, but the results are stunning. I really love this pattern, and the yarn. I washed and dried it in my machines on delicate and then laid flat to finish (it was barely damp when I pulled it out of the dryer).

7-24-19 - finally done … and gifted - and she LOVES it!!

4-24-19 - SIL is making progress!

3-27-19 - sister passed along to SIL slightly_smiling_face

8-2-18 - finished my part and passed the project along to my sister.

7-26-18 - working 28 repeats of each color; I’m 6 repeats into CC2.
