I knew about 1/4 of the way through that I wasn't going to like this blanket or this knitting experience. I almost threw in the towel a few times. Not because it was difficult, but because it was painfully boring. But, here's the thing...I always throw in the towel if a project is too boring, difficult, or just flat out unloved. I'm also a frequent unfinisher (yes, I know that isn't a word). There are so many projects that get started and then tossed aside for newer, shinier ones. Out of a determination to change my ways, I kept going....and going....and going. Oh, my stars, y'all, I thought this blanket was never going to end! Everyday for the past week, I've woken up thinking, "Yay, today is the finish day!" And, then it wasn't. But, yesterday, it was. And, I am relieved and so happy.
Even though, this yarn has been stared at far too long for me to like it anymore, I had plenty of leftovers. So, I'm making a hat. Because, really, babies can't have too many blankets or hats. It's just not possible.
P.S. I seem to have photographed the blanket's backside. The front doesn't look much different though, so oh. well.
And, P.P.S. Don't forget to enter my giveaway!!
Hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start!
