It knits itself

I kept looking at it draped over my knees towards my hands and thinking, how did that happen already?

As far as I can tell unblocked and still on the needles I’m at about 60×40″ so far. Malabrigo Mecha in Anniversario colorway, one skein for each of the ten years that Malabrigo is celebrating with that name and that kaleidoscope; I started it last Friday (after ditching the purple that was going to be the border–I think it’ll make a great sideways-knit scarf.) Photo taken in today’s late afternoon light a skein of yarn ago.

Every hank in the dye lot is different. Every one somehow works within the context of the others: even when I don’t think it will, it does and then the one after that confirms it and I can’t wait to see the whole thing done.

Looks lovely, as usual. As to how did that happen already? Well, it’s much thicker than a laceweight!

What’s the stitch pattern? Can’t tell from the pic.
