Otherwise known as the project that made me not hate purling so much. Seriously. It happened. Now don’t get me wrong, I still don’t love purling and would choose knit stitch if given the choice, but something clicked and I figured out a good rhythm for it. There were a few ups and downs in the making of this blanket and it would sit in the time out pile for weeks at a time. Laura even rescued me once when she knitted it back for me after I had turned my work in the middle of the row, messing the whole thing up.
This is a blanket I started last summer, I believe. It will go on its way to its recipient tomorrow. She doesn’t know its coming and I plan for it just to show up at her house, unannounced. I’m excited and I think she will be too!
I double stranded the yarns using Caron Simply Soft Party in Silver Sparkle and Caron Simply Soft in Purple (my favorite blanket yarns). I made up the pattern as I went and really like the way it turned out!
It came of the needles last night and I even got all the ends sewed in already. I will wash it this afternoon and get it packed up to go tomorrow!
