I also discovered this piece. I'm thinking this is from, like, three years ago.
I don't recall what my original intention was for this, but I've decided I like it and will complete it as a summy blanky for baby. It's Rowan Summer Tweed on US 9, a combination of two stitch patterns from the Vogue Knitting Stitchionary, Volume One.
Despite the muggy weather, I am almost through putting my studio together. Someone is enjoying it.
