The Rest of the Story of Rosa's Blanket.

First let me apologize for the unpictured and uncredited squares. Sixty different people contributed: Theresa, Terri, Lynne, Margie, Jennifer, Beth, Cherie, Diane, Lauren, Rosa, Bev, Nola, and I. We used Lion Brand Fisherman's yarn. There are 25 twelve inch (30 cm.) blocks arranged in a five by five square. Theresa and I carefully whip-stitched all the seams. But that isn't the real story.

The real story is a tale told mostly in pictures.
This is the square that never was. It is not in the quilt. I don't think I've ever worked as hard on a piece of knitting as on that. That's why I'm making you look at it. It is what became of the little pyramid from several posts back. It stubbornly remains lettuce despite the concerted efforts of the best minds in modern medicine knitting. I think a frog ate it. I don't want to see it ever again. It'll suck me into trying to perfect it again. Let's leave that to cooler heads.
Knitter unknown. Sorry.Knitter unknown. Knitter unknown. I knitted this one to replace the square which shall not be named.

Center gets the square. This kooky kewl square was used as the very center of the blanket. Knitted by Lauren.
Knitter unknown. Memory like a sieve, anybody?
Assembly.
Teddy was into it.
The last two sections are combined.
The first peek at it as a single piece.

Both kitties wanted to pose with it, but neither wanted to be seen posing. Here is Musette,

and you all know Teddy.
Finito.

Actually, her full name is Rambo. First name unknown. Laptop is scared of her, actually :)

It's crinkle silk and needs no ironing. I made three of them for travel in different colors. Just squish them into balls and stuff into the suitcase.

I pity you if you have the same eyeglass prescription!

Laptop says hi and wonders if she should try to get a job in Hollywood based on your recommendation?

And finally, when we shear Rambo at the end of November, remind me to send you a sample to play with.
