Travel Afghan - Block #55

The blocks of my Travel Afghan are finished, all 55 of them.  Now, I have to think about what I want to do for the border.  Right now I'm thinking that I will do one side at a time in garter stitch with mitered corners, getting the yarn from each of 4 more future trips.  It gives me an excuse to I need one!  This last block represents my trip to San Antonio and Austin, Texas.


Pattern:  Rambling Rows Afghan from Cottage Creations
Large block - started with 80 sts.

Yarn:  Wonderland Yarns, Fingering weight is called Cheshire Cat.
Color:  Barley Sugar
Yarn held double.
Purchased at:  Yarnivore in San Antonio
The skein of yarn was a generous 500+ yards so there is plenty left for other projects.

  Needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm 

Note:  I chose this yarn as I'd never seen it anywhere else before.  If I think of a color that is associated with Texas it would be yellow for the "yellow rose of Texas".  Yellow is also the color on the sign on the yarn store.

Next time.... the Grand Prix...
