After two months of knitting, it’s finished!
That gigantic blanket of stripey randomness. The bed cover of brightness. The knitting project that would never end. Miles upon miles of stockinette. That one, yes.
Technically, it’s still not finished: The ends aren’t woven in. But it’s been in use, so I’m counting it, at least for the sake of the blog. I couldn’t stand to deal with it, to have its massive weight on my lap any longer, even in the basement. The ends will get woven in sometime, but not this month.
It’s 90-plus inches wide and 102-plus inches long. I finished the border (1 round single crochet, then 2 rounds half-double crochet) on 9 May. It’s pictured on our queen-sized bed. This blanket is 100 percent cotton, knit from recycled sweaters.
I’m thrilled with it, seeing it makes me happy, and I like how it feels, too. The knitting got to be a bit of a slog toward the end, though. (Which always seems to happen to me. Solutions?)
