Rainbow Afghan

Not part of the presentation today is this just- finished afghan. Another product of my knervous-knitting series. 150 stitches on a long size 6 needle. Change colors a lot! This time I changed colors all at one edge, so there is a right side and a wrong side to the garter stitch, but it is personal choice as to which is which. I wove in the ends and didn't trim them until after it was washed and dried, and I really like that method. They are better hidden. The yarn is Knit Picks Dishie. It is just the right size and weight to be a good lap blanket. The kids and grand kids seem to grab for these small blankets first when they need something cozy. Another one is already cast on and a few rows have been knitted. Mindless, which is just what I need sometimes. Jerilynn
