I was so excited about knitting this little blanket but it’s just about the most tedious thing ever. I’ve ripped it already to reduce the number of stitches thereby the size and time to make it but it’s still going nowhere fast. I went from 144 stitches on a #7 to 104 stitches on a #8.
Not to mention, how much yarn it’s eating and I haven’t even turned the first corner yet. I’m holding two strands of Louet Gems sport weight. That tiny ball at the top of the picture is all that’s left of the first two skeins. (225 yards)
Forgive me Elizabeth but I have to rip again. I’m going to try the Mystery Blanket from the April chapter of the Knitter’s Almanac instead. It starts from the center and you work your way out….we’ll see. I’m thinking blankets (baby or adult) leave the same taste in my mouth as scarves….
This isn’t fun yet. I may have to stick with baby sweaters and accessories.
