FO: "Earth, Wind & Fire" Blanket
Finally done! It's resting ALL OVER my sofa hide-a-bed for now...but later I'll take it off and fold it up...maybe park it on the top of the sofa, folded lengthwise, draping two rows down the back of the sofa. Here are my Ravelry notes if you are interested in the yarn used, quantity, and pattern design!

70" x 56"

You really do want to just look, and then look again at the gorgeous colors. They work so well into the mitred squares and are set off beautifully with the neutral border. Another perfect work of art!

You are such a great knitter, I can't believe that was not machine made. Your corner intersections are absolutely perfect.
I agree with the others who said: That is a work of art!

BEAUTIFUL. Reminds me of a stained glass window.
