Final pic of the wrap and go for the gold

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.
