I Can Taste It

This quilt is so close to being done I can taste it. See this photo? That's the border blocks waiting to be sewn!
I haven't shown you the side blocks yet, have I? Well, here's one set.
 And just for giggles, a shawl I finished. It's made of one skein of acrylic. Yes, I know the yarn snobs reading this are now horrified, but there's something to be said for machine wash and dry when your dogs like to snuggle in your lap and burrow under your shawls.

Your acrylic is pretty, what yarn is it?

I knit with both because I have family I knit for and I can't trust them with handwashing. ;-) Currently working on a spiderman blanket for the nephew out of wool-ease.

James C. Brett Marble Chunky. I got it at Craft Warehouse. The one near us is closing but they are building a site for web sales. The yarn is a bit fuzzy once you frog it, but not so much that you can't rip it out if need be. The skeins are huge, 200 grams I think.
