Its quite an emotional moment, I have been working on this since January 2008, so nearly three years!
(although there is still much work to be done, sewing in ends, sewing the squares together, crocheting a border and possibly lining the blanket)
You see I have had a rummage through my squares and there are two which are very, very blue. I really am not a blue girl, although some blues are filtering into my stash, generally I do not have very much blue in rooms that I use. Boys bedrooms are an exception. So once I have laid out my squares I will see just how much these blue squares jar in my arty mind.
Next is the decision on whether it will be wide enough. I am doing a 7 by 5 format. I don’t want it too wide because then the weight of it can break the yarn, but not wide enough just leaves you feeling drafty. And after three years I do wish to be cosy.
So I am looking for perfection, perfection, perfection.
There is a side of me that just says, Finish the blanket and get on with your Christmas knitting…
Decisions, decisions, decisions.
