Extreme water knitting

I thought I'd better get on with my knitted squares for the Water Aid campaign - the last deadline I heard of was early 2007.

So this was the perfect opportunity to have a go at Rachel John's "extreme knitting".

This was SO much fun. I have so many odds and ends of yarns - some of them really not very nice or exciting on their own. This was done with 10 strands of yarn - its much easier than I expected to knit them together. The needles are the largest I have - they are about 1.5cm.

It knitted up amazingly quickly, and the finished piece has a lovely thick, soft, luxurious feel to it, and I love the mix of colours and textures.
