On the needles

I'm so excited about my current project that I fee the need to share it in its unfinished state. 
It's a modified version of Kate Davies' Tir Chonaill blanket.
There is something so very very satisfying about knitting this gorgeous colourwork pattern: about working two separate strands of proper woollen wool (the sort that itches if worn about the neck); about cutting the steek; about picking up & knitting on edges and icords.

I originally gave myself one week to finish this project, but have ripped out & re-worked a few parts of the piece. I'm on to the very last few steps now & look forward to showing this off... for this is going to be something to be worn & displayed prominently. I am a knitter & I want everyone to know it!
