a knitter navigates through life

opinions, please!

I need opinions. You like giving opinions. This should work well.
First: the wall.


Ain't it purdy?

Now, the test.


Question: Is it wide enough? Caveats: I will be adding a border (hopefully sometime before my eventual death of old age) at least one repeat wide. Second: this is intended to be a coverlet, to go over another blanket. (Kureyon = pretty but scratchy.) So it will not be the only warmth-providing cover on my poor little sleeping form come winter. What do you think?

I think it will be fine at that size, with a substantial border.

It is gorgeous, really. Good job.

btw... your link to my blog goes to a single entry. You'll want to use a different URL to go to the front page.

IF I get in the habit of writing again. ;)

It is a perfect size! Also, it totally looks like an art installation when hanging on the wall. This gives me an idea for the next thing that I knit that doesn't fit-it goes on the wall. Since nothing I knit actually fits, I am guessing my walls will be looking pretty wooly...

I'm with them. It will be wonderful with a border!

You do know you will have to bring the entire thing, border and all, to our group when you are finished.

I think the size is perfect. That said, if you decide you want to make it larger, just do what quilters do and add several borders of various sizes.

Beautiful! I love Noro yarn and this looks like an art installation!

I think it's great like that-like you said it is a coverlet. With a border it will be perfect. Great job!
