Rainbow Bright

There might not be too many WIPs shown around here for the next few months because I'm working on a new magnum opus. What do you get when you combine 11 skeins of madelinetosh tosh merino light (so shiny!  my favorite!) and a crazy lady?

(Yes, this is only 10.  I have a skein of Cloak for the border.)

You get a mitred square blanket inspired by the brilliant Double Vision and the gorgeous Hue Shift afghan.  I knew I wanted to make a mired square blanket using Shelly Kang's fantastic tutorial, and I really liked the look of Double Vision and Hue Shift.  Neither of those used exactly the right colors for me, though, so I went through a lot of trial and error with Paint and Excel until I came up with something that looked exactly the way I wanted it to.

(There is a mistake in the top corner - please ignore it because it makes me sad.)

At least, I think this is exactly the way I want it to look.  This is my fifth version.  I spent hours recoloring tiny boxes trying to figure out how best to balance the colors and I think this is it.  I hope I was right.

So far so good.  (As long as I can manage to keep all of the cat hair away.  hahahahahaha)
