On New Year’s Day, I finished another blanket that I’d had on the needles since June. I started knitting in January of 2016, and this blanket was the first “big” project that I set out to do. It kept getting interrupted by the need to work on other things - there were two new babies to knit for, then it was the heat of summer and a blanket just didn’t sound appealing, then I had to knit “The Blanket” for my cousin. Taking advantage of the down time that the holiday week gave me, I made a push and finished my Cromwell Court Afghan.
Yarn is the recommended Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick - one of my favorite yarns! Very warm and snuggly.
Then, I made the mistake of leaving it unattended, and this happened:
One of these days, I will steal it back from the cat and use it. (Interestingly, that stripe of brown that you see at bottom right on the cat photo is the cat’s own blanket that I made for him out of the same wool-ease yarn…little pain in my butt!) But at least it’s done, and I love it, and now I am clear to begin my next “learn as I go” project - a sweater vest! Consider yourselves warned; many questions will probably be coming from me over the next weeks/months as I work on this thing!
