I have so much respect for knitters and crocheters, who make the never-ending stream of blankets large and small. Not me! Recently there was a discussion of a “Knitting Nemesis” on one of my crafts lists, to me blankets certainly qualify. Not because they are hard to make, but because you have to keep doing that same thing over and over and over, and meanwhile other projects are flirting with me. So I end up abandoning the poor blanket and from time to time just glance at it.
Before Summer I have decided to take a few project that have been lingering with me, hoping that I will get bored and finally do something about them. The “Baby Checks” blanket was one of them. I am yet to get bored, but… I have began working on it again. And I have made a decision, when the yarn runs out – the blanket is done.
Actually it is very pretty and I love the look of it. What is more important is that DD#3 – the intended recipient likes it, she keeps trying to carry it away.
