I most proudly present... The Curlicue!

In her unblocked, blurry glory, I give you The Curlicue. She was started way back on February 29 when I found a similar blanket on Ravelry. I wasn't sure how I was going to make myself pay for 15 balls of Silk Garden but I decided to go for it anyway. I bought one ball at a time there for awhile and then I discovered WEBS and their discount. :) It made it a little more palatable and I ordered my little heart away (and wallet). I finally finished up on July 6. I used 15 balls in 14 colors. Each inner section of the star takes just about one full ball (I only ran short on one point) and each outer petal takes about 2/3rds of a ball. So I am left with probably 2-3 balls of leftovers. The numbers on the picture indicate the color number of the yarn.
