so you had to know there was no way lindsey and i were going to let claire get married without giving her and georg a jointly-knitted gift.
after surprisingly little debate (we both love log cabining) we settled on buncha squares (rav link) by the lovely mason-dixon ladies in a jewel tone/black color scheme (yarn is knitpicks swish worsted, something we could both easily get our hands on from opposite sides of the country).
the plan was we could each knit up half the squares and then linds would mail her squares to me and i would seam them up. (at one point there was some confusion on the total number of squares we were making and lindsey ended up making 9 so i only had to make 7. i did feel a little guilty, but decided it would be okay since i was doing the seaming and the border.)
we cast on in august, figuring that there was no way we'd make the october wedding deadline. but the u.s. reception at the end of december - that seemed totally doable. and we made it - i finished putting on the border on the 24th - a whole 6 days before the reception.
so without further ado, here's lindsey and i's joint project: the c+g afghan.
unfortunately lindsey wasn't able to travel up to wisconsin for the reception, but seeing as how minnesota is so much closer to wisconsin than texas, i was able to attend and to present the lovely couple with their afghan in person.
i'm happy to report that it was well received and as luck would have it is just the perfect size for snuggling and smootching under!
just as we had planned all along.
