Finished Object Friday
One of the ladies in my January due date group delivered a stillborn son earlier in 2010, and the rest of us decided to knit or crochet squares to make a patchwork blanket for her and her husband. This was the square I made. I was supposed to mail this off today, but as I was putting the package together, I noticed that someone (ahem! Eight year old!) spilled hot cocoa on it. Now it is hanging to dry and I will be mailing it tomorrow instead.
Pattern: Xs and Os washcloth (Rav link)
Yarn: Takhi Yarns Coast in Teal
Needles: Size 5 9" straights (I do use straight needles once in a blue moon)
Modifications: If you look at the pattern, there is some lacework in the middle, but I decided I would just knit stockinette for the center to give the square some more structural integrity. Plus I suck at lacework. This was the first time I had ever tried knit a textural piece - and I am quite happy with the result.
