I finally finished my knit blanket yesterday that I started in January. It took forever, mostly because I put it away and ignored i for weeks at a time, but it’s finally finished now and I’m glad. Its not as flashy and colorful as my crocheted blanket but its super warm, cozy, and very plush, and it’s going to be great in winter. I just wish now I had made it a little wider as its really only twin sized.
The brown bits in the teal yarn pooled in interesting ways and the places were it didn’t pool at all are neat too due to the garter stitch. The whole thing turned out well and I feel good for having completed such a large and time consuming project- I especially feel good because I finished it! Mattie was teasing me the other day about starting and not finishing things, which was what got me motivated to complete my two blankets quickly.
Yesterday I also started a small snuggle blanket for Jami’s daughter and finished it this morning. I’ll be meeting her today to get some other yarn and make up one for her little boy as well in different colors. I’m trying to use stash yarn rather than buy any more, but I need to get another color of the Bernat Blanket I’m using for Eric’s little blanket and I figure I can make a larger one of the same colors for myself for on the couch or something after I finish his to use up the rest of that yarn. It’ll just be a lap sized one I think with less than two of the big balls into it.
