June Primetime KAL another hitchhiker

I took out the blocking pins yesterday and hoped to get a pic of Lisa wearing it, but she's away for the day. I'll post one when I can. The purple yarn was dyed in the crock pot with Wilton's violet frosting dye. The odds and ends of the mini mochi are little treasures to be saved and used for accents when I can. I think it makes all the difference in this project. :) 42 teeth which I think is a great size.

Wow, that looks stunning with the slices of rainbow.

Thanks for the nice compliment, Kate. I think I would have lost my marbles knitting it with just the purple. The rainbow helped keep my interest and I think added a lot to the final result. This is a fun project, but BORING if the yarn is plain. I think it is meant for a striping yarn to show off the bias effect. :)
