The blanket hibernated for a while there while I worked on other things, but I pulled it out again last month, and progress has been fairly steady for the last few weeks.
At (nearly) five blocks by six blocks, it’s getting big enough to imagine what it will be like when it’s finished. I am envisioning a lot of cozy evenings underneath my very own blanket this winter. No more stealing Flufy’s granny square blanket! Or, BOG’s hexagons. Although, it’s usually Flufy’s blanket I take – those are more my colors. Anyway, it will be so nice to have my own. Get ready for it to show up in most of my upcoming cold-weather photos…
My goal is an eight by six layout, so I suspect I could have this done in 3 weeks or so (one row of six per week?). Maybe a little longer, if I end up starting my September sweater at some point in there. (And, who are we kidding? You know I will!)
I’ve been thinking about the border, and I’m toying with the idea of doing something different than my other two blankets. I may stray from the granny design, and go for a scalloped edge that mimics the flower petals. I’m not sure, though. Maybe it’s already girly enough without frilly edges.
It’s a lovely, very quiet Saturday morning. I’m going to go finish up that last square before my coffee gets cold. Enjoy your day!
