WHEW!!! This baby is off the blocking bed!!! It measures 65" in diameter and is made from the pattern I designed. I used Valley Cotton Carpet Warp in Spectra Yellow...a 4 ply, heavy thread and 100% cotton... Ravelry Project Page (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/mwhite/sunstar)

Yes, you read that right… Carpet Warp! It’s very soft and despite how it sounds, has not been trampled or imbedded with cat/dog hair or sand particles yet! LOL! It is actually 4 strands of size 8 thread, twisted together and it thicker than 5/2 but lighter than 3/2. Valley yarns produces it in a large variety of pretty colors and it’s inexpensive, knits well and blocks wonderfully… Can be ordered from Yarns.com(WEBS) (http://www.yarn.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/product.detail/categoryID/3D03DC12-64EF-4CFA-BA1E-65F9D62C685D/productID/1678D93C-670E-42E1-B5CE-E3E9C1378D9D/)

These are magnificent, Mary! Superb to the Nth degree! Thank you, too! I always feel like another child has left the nest when one of these is done...:pout: And on the other hand, those last 10-12 rounds have so many stitches that it's a relief to see them off the needles! :woohoo:

Thanks so much!!! I have given the yellow one to a dear friend from Peru....she's married a local fellow and misses her Mom's handwork so much and she fell in love with it!
