I've just finished the op art baby blanket from knitty.  Great pattern to use, the first couple of rows are a little fiddly (increasing stitches, working in the round & changing colour - all with 4 stitches on the needles!), but once you get going it is really easy & I think it looks great.  It is about 110cm square, and was almost 100,000 stitches!





It has gone off in the post to a friends new arrival.

Ps) the geek in me made a spreadsheet to keep track of how many stitches I did over time, so I plotted a graph of the blanket!!!

The spiraling blanket is really cool.
I am happy to see that I am not the only one who makes graphs of random things  Wink. Looks like you had a pretty consistent rate of stitching.
