FO: Super Mario Bros blanket
I'm finally finished!

Here is my WIP post for information: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=405011.0

Here are the pictures :D



Size comparison to me

I'm 5'1" and it covers everything but my head. It's 50 inches. The look on my face is really weird, haha.


The crazy back.

You better take out insurance on it, someone might decide they really like it. I consider it a work of art.

It's simply amazing.

Your color work is amazing! I looked at your other sites, and I can't believe that you are just 17 and have only been knitting for 3 years. (Well, I do believe you, but you know . . .) I have been knitting for over 60 years (!) and can't begin to do work like that.

Thanks :)
Aw, thank you everybody! It will be a wall-hanging for my brother, so it is like a work of art.

Yes, many people are shocked by the fact that I've only been knitting for three years. Color work is my specialty I'm still not an advanced knitter, though, because there are many things I can not do. For example, I do not know how to cable yet and I've never done stitches other than rib, stockinette, purl, and seed stitch. I'm getting there, though

When you want to do cables, etc., you'll do great. If you get stuck, there is always help here.

How will you hang it? I've been wondering how to do it right since I'm thinking of making a wall hanging...it won't be anywhere near the scale you accomplished.
