Pakucho Treasure, just about FO


Pattern: Centerpiece Treasure Afghan, Lion Brand Pattern
Yarn: Pakucho Organic Cotton 6 colors, about 2 skeins each
Needles: Knitpicks Options, size 9
Mods: Finished up with a picot bind-off. With the last color, I knit one row, then purled one row the did the picot bind-off, casting on two and binding off. I think that last purled row cut down on the curling.
I have yet to block or wash this thing. It's not quite a square or circle, and small like the the baby it's for. The yarn is very cushy. The stockinette is just the thing for mindless knitting while catching up on the netflicks.

It looks beautiful in the Pakucho! I'm glad I got the chance to feel it up too. ;-)

I think this might just have given me the incentive to finish mine. Maybe. I'm not sure where I put it. Rut roh.

It's so pretty. I love the way the natural colors meld together. There's something soothing about it.

Answer to the Noro question:
I enjoyed knitting with the Cash Iroha and the Silver Thaw. Every now and then things drifted apart due to lack of twist, but that's not unusual for Noro.
