My friend Erin recently asked me to give a little update on my Missoni-inspired afghan and I don't want to disappoint.
As you may recall, I started this afghan after reading Reckless Glue's post about her Missoni-inspired beauty. At the start of one of our many road trips this past summer, I filled my canvas knitting bag with skeins and skeins of stashed yarn (Berroco Vintage, Cascade 220, Patons), threw in a US 8 circular needle, and cast on once we started our journey to Washington, DC.
I didn't have a game plan in mind -- the colors were going to be completely random (or at least what was already in my stash with no designated pattern for them). And as you can see, the bands of color vary in height which I like. I've been steadily working on this WIP over the last three months, and it's been such a nice project especially at the end of a long day at work, when I really want to knit but I don't have the mental energy to keep a complicated pattern in my mind or do too much counting.
So, my dear Erin, this little beauty is more than half-way done and I'll soon be running out of stash bits so completion is near. I'm determined not to buy any new yarn for this project and expect you to hold me to that!
