Knitting

Friday Fun!!

It’s done!!! It’s over!!! The monkey is off my back! 3rd time may be a charm, but I am happy to be done with this 3rd Prairie Blanket. I am retiring this pattern to the archives. Never again. Maybe it didn’t help that this time I modified it to make it longer instead of square. But since this was for a toddler, I felt it would work better to be a rectangle. It reaches edge to edge on my blocking board.

None of these shots are really color correct.

Connor’s Redo Blanket
Pattern: Prairie Blanket
Yarn: Cascade Pacific

The shot of the yarn is the remainder of the 5 skeins I purchased. I was sweating it for sure! As I approached the end I was watching that skein get smaller and smaller. And the fear was there. And the doubt, why did I push it. I had gambled that 2.5 skeins in I would start the 2nd half of the blanket. And I did, but did I really hit it at the halfway point? As I neared the end I was sure I had miscalculated. But happily I was wrong!!! Whew!

Now, what to focus on?

The umpteen other things I have going already? Why no. I just had to buy this lovely yarn for 2 more hats.

These will hopefully make 2 Ava Berets for my great-nieces. I may be cutting it close again, so fingers will be crossed.

Now head over to see what others are having fun with this week!

  1. Wow, that was cutting it close! The blanket is beautiful and the perfect size for a toddler. It also will make a perfect throw when he outgrows it. Love how it looks draped over your chair.
