Grand Canyon Sunset
West Coast Oddball blankets are on the move. I finished my section of Grand Canyon Sunset yesterday by using a Garter Stitch Steps stitch. The stitch worked up quickly and added some texture to the blanket.
I was going to use a muted tone of the Mango yarn that AuburnChick used to start the blanket, but it just didn't look right. I opted for a turquoise from my stash which is brighter than I would like, but it was the best I could find without going out and purchasing a new yarn which, in my opinion, defeats the purpose of the Oddball knitting. I knit strictly from my stash for these blankets.
