Absorba Complete!!

Ahhh. Finally. It does need some blocking but I figured since it was a bathmat...it really wasn't a high priority. ;-p

Here you can see one of our cats, Scully, thrilled to be modelling my Purple Roving Scarf.
She wants to be ON the handknits - not IN them apparently.

I used a simple drop stitch pattern on large needles. It was a fun knit I completed while watching The Ghost and The Darkness. Still scary that movie. Yipes. The explanations do help, I was convinced they were monsters!

ETA: Sorry 'bout that! The bathmat is Absorba from Mason Dixon Knitting and dunh dunh dunh I used up some nameless acrylic from the stash for it. Absorba is a log cabin pattern that I am not sure I would use again - I think I would rather just knit one big rectangle - I think it would lay nicer. However, I think it doesn't lay nicely because I must have made a mistake picking up stitches on one of the sides. Not too sure blocking can fix that! It was knit with 3 strands together and therefore: Absorba.

i really like the bathmat - must of missed it in another post, any additional info on it? Wher edid you get the pattern? Yarn used? I have heard of using old strips of flannel sheets knotted together then knitted for bath mats!

I totally love Absorba! You know, I've been on the hunt for a pattern for a knitted bathmat for ages, and this seems to be the perfect one! Now I'll just need to get that book ;)
And my gosh, how very sweet your lil' furry one looks as a model - but hmmmh, Scully sure needs to get a bit more motivated to become big on the catwalk ;)
