July 8. Spent the day at a friend's gender reveal cookout. (She's having a boy.) This is the friend for whom I knitted the lacy diatom blanket. I got all the double knit stitches picked up around the dish towel while I was there. Got home around 5-ish and proceeded to spend the next 5 hours knitting the border.
July 9. Finished the knitting part of the border. What possessed me to do a concealed edge on this thing?!? The recommendation I have for Kitchener stitch is 4-5 times the length of the fabric to be grafted. I have 19 YARDS of yarn on a tapestry needle! This is going to be a chore. Three stitches in and I've already had to untangle twice. I should be done with it sometime before I go to bed.
