I decided to knit again. This project has more dropped stitches than anything else, and I abandoned it about six years ago so I really can’t tell you what I was trying to do with it. I know it was supposed to be a baby blanket since I found an old blog (I’d abandoned it, too) and it told me so. But other than that, I really don’t understand what I was doing. So, I’m finishing it up with stockinette stitch in the middle and a garter stitch border. Since it’s monumentally messed up and I don’t have the heart to frog it and start over, it’s going to be a weirdly-stitched baby doll blanket. I doubt the doll will care. I’ll do better for my next project, but in the meantime, it’s good practice in basic stitching.
I’d forgotten how badly stockinette stitch curls. I can’t wait until there’s a little bit of weight on it to so I can actually lay it out and see what I’m doing.
I’m hoping to start another baby blanket, possibly for my son, who got a bit short-changed in the blanket department. His sister has been given at least 3-4 and I think all of his are hand-me-downs from her. He needs a blanket of his own. Maybe he can take it to daycare?
I haven’t decided whether to work on those two projects simultaneously or one at a time.
I’m also working on sewing a baby blanket for a childhood friend of mine, but I’ll post those pictures once it’s a bit further along. The fabric has been washed but still needs ironing, so you can only imagine.
It’s been a busy week. Time to relax, catch up on sleep, and try to get further into this blanket.
