Most of this year has been a blur, albeit a busy one. My family has coped with personal tragedy, fought illnesses on various fronts, and my husband and I are building a new home. At the same time, I am re-evaluating my professional career while juggling knitting and quilting projects…and keeping up with this blog.
I managed to finish a new throw.
I started this throw from a pattern but I lost the pattern after finishing a quarter of the pattern. That really wasn’t a big deal until I started watching a movie and oops, I missed a row or started knitting a different row. Who knows. I don’t. I didn’t notice something was wrong until I was several rows past my mistake row.
What to do? Well, I am not a fan of ripping out my knitting and I am definitely not a fan of knitting blankets (though I am knitting them more often), so I spent the next few days knitting the remainder of this blanket to look as if I meant to do what I did. So glad that’s over…never been happier to weave in ends.
That’s it for now. One blanket and blog post down. A million other things to go!
By the way, this throw is a cheap knit. I knit it with Lion brand yarn, the Hometown USA line in the Aspen Tweed colorway, typically available at Walmart. Each ball costs about $2.50 and this throw used about 15 balls of yarn.
