I’m finished with Stashbustin’ #9. This was one of my less than enjoyable knitting projects. I started here, then changed course here, finally made at least some progress here, and thus leaving me utterly done with this project!
It really did need a third skein of yarn. But I just couldn’t bare the thought of continuing to work on this blanket, so I just cast off.
I ended up with roughly a 55 inch long by 32 inch wide strip of knitting. I’m thinking lap blanket??? Who the heck knows…
Folded in half it makes two appropriately sized baby blankets. Maybe I should get a pillow insert and seam around it for a pillow cover?
I did learn a few things from this experience:
A) Always check gauge or risk ending up with a wonky size
B) I learned how I need to treat chenille for both maximum stitch definition and fabric quality
C) I should listen to my mother
I WILL work with this yarn again. I just need a better game plan next time! But now this project is done and I can focus on my raglan cardi.
TGIF and Happy Knitting!!
