This Blanket is a bigger project than I anticipated. I have been really “going for it” and I still have only achieved 52 out of 81 squares (Thats 64% !)
Here’s the heap of blanket that quietly evolving in the corner….
Ben has now got used to the sight of me with a bad case of “Blue Hand”. I said the dye was loose on the darkest colours didn’t I?
Take a look at the state of my hands after knitting about half a dark blue square…
My thumb gets particularly lurid….
The good news is that it washes off easily with soap, water and slight attention from a nailbrush.
If 64% doesn’t really convey much to you, here’s a shot of my chart for marking off the squares…
The pink squares are done. Look!! The 5 complete strips are done on the right and I’m happy to report they are all sewn together too!
I’m also ticking off the completed squares of each type as I do them. The lines highlighted in yellow are the ones where I have finished knitting all of that type of square! Exciting huh?
I’m actually finishing some parts!
