Travel Afghan - Block #54

For me, no trip would be complete without adding another block to my Travel Afghan. I found "the one" at FabricBliss in Denver.  It was a good choice for many reasons:  it looked like the colors of the Yarn Along The Rockies logo, I'd never seen this yarn anywhere else before and I got it at FabricBliss and I think that the owner of the shop is one of the organizers of the yarn crawl.

My afghan is getting close to completion.  This is block #54 out of #55.  I'll do a garter stitch border but I have yet to decide how I'll do it.  What I'm leaning towards at the moment is to do one side at a time and each side will be another trip.  So, here is block #54....


Pattern:  Rambling Rows Afghan from Cottage Creations
I started with 80 stitches for the rectangular block

Yarn:  Abuelita 100% Merino Worsted
Color #111 - Fantasyland (I don't see it listed on their website)
220 yards/200 meters
3.5 oz/100 grams
 Single ply

  Needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm

 Note:  I think that this is the first yarn I've knit with from Montevideo, Uruguay
