Mum’s rate of knitting has slowed down for one reason or another so I am catching up with my finishing in comparison to her output!
Here are two blankets completed by me at the end of last year.
I know, they’re all starting to look much the same but garter stitch is all mum can do. At least the recipients won’t know that there are several similar-looking blankets out there!
This third blanket is made in a different yarn, much thicker, heavier and harsher; we will not be using it again. I have used a pale yellow for the sashing and borders instead of the white I usually use.
Mum is no longer able to cope with long strips of 250 rows so we are back to using shorter strips cross-wise.
I’m currently working on Blanket #10 (the knitting, and therefore the counting, of blankets began March 2015). There are not yet enough strips to start on Blanket #11 so I’m almost up-to-date: woo-hoo!
Does anyone have any tips for photographing knitted blankets so they’re square, not stretched out of shape like mine always are. I’ve tried pegging them to a line (as seen in this post) but they still stretch and sag. Any tips would be appreciated?
May your stitches bring you much joy.
