As I predicted, the Every Way Wrap blocked out beautifully.
Pattern: Every Way Wrap from Interweave Knits Fall 2009
Yarn: Karabella Aurora 8, in Anthracite
Needles: US9 (I think)
Modifications: Other than an extra pattern repeat, none
The buttonholes are there, but I'm leaving the button selection to my daughter, for whom I knit this.
A lot of the knitting for this wrap occurred while I watched the Olympics, but for some reason, during the final hockey game, I felt the need for a new dishcloth.
This is the Mason-Dixon 9-patch, with colors representing the US and Canada on the ice, vying for gold. I picked up stitches through the bumps at the ends of the garter rows, in an attempt to make the thing more reversible. I didn't photograph the reverse side, but take my word for it, it's still not all that reversible.
Speaking of reversible, I am interested in doing a reversible entrelac baby blanket and searched for such on the Web. Turns out, I am not the only one with an interest in "garterlac". There is a pattern for a dishcloth, so I will try that first, to see how it looks. What I would really like to do, though, is a baby blanket in Tunisian crochet. Check out the Winter 2009 issue of Interweave Crochet. I'm just not sure I want to learn something new right now. My brain feels full.
