Thanks for all your encouragement to keep going on blanket #1. In the process I started blanket #2 (I needed something that felt faster) It will be done in no time!
This picture is a day or two old and now I have less than 3 rows on the border left! So hopefully this weekend it will be done. This has been a fun project (and it has nice little scallops on the border that I find really sweet, can't wait to finish and show you those) and it is nice having some natural "guide posts." When you get the center done....I feel like I've made tons of progress, then just the border. Then I know I only have 12 more rounds to go vs my current knitting pattern.....go until 36 inches then you are done. Maybe that is why I like knitting socks? Do the leg...yeah....heel....yeah...gusset....yeah...foot....yeah....toes (or reverse) but those little achievements motivate me. I always think I can do the next little step.
