As the say “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry”. I had hoped to finish this blanket in 6 weeks, but that did not happen.
After much searching (and a little frogging) I opted to leave the corner squares blank. I knitted each of them in a straight stockinette stitch.
Back to my knitting.
The knitting continues. I am happy to say, I was able to complete a little more this week than I did last week. As you can see, I finished and attached a white stripe, completed an additional alphabet stripe and a white stripe. I usually attach each stripe before beginning the next, but I worked on the white row at a doctor’s appointment – yes it was a very long wait. I guess I better figure out what I will do with the corner squares now that I am ready to knit them. Check back next week to see what I decide.
Yes, it has been three weeks since I began working on a baby blanket for a friend. No, I am not expecting a baby.
This week was a bit more productive. I completed the next strip of letters and began on the next border strip. I will need to block the project but will wait until I am complete to do that.
