As of late this afternoon, I have finished knitting the strips! This project seems to be slogging along -- and I suppose it is, actually, slogging along -- but ONLY because my time has been so divided, lately, not because I'm tired of it or bored. Look at it! "Boring" is not a word I'd use to describe...
The other day I very loosely pinned the pieces together and laid them out on a piece of muslin. As soon as I get the ends woven in on the last three strips, I'll pin them in and then photograph it -- pretty much as above, but neater (as in tidy, not cool... though this project is definitely COOL!). I want to make sure the lights and darks are balanced, or at least pleasing -- I'm not worried about the strips quite as much as the six squares. My method was developed as I knit the squares, so there are some inconsistencies; by the time I started the strips, it was rock-solid. I may photograph a few different arrangements.
What I'm wondering right now is whether I should wash and block all before sewing up. I'm kinda thinking I should. What do you think?
