It Is Finished!

Remember back in October (October!) when I started knitting a baby blanket, similar to this lovely pattern?

Well in December right as I was about to be drowned in holiday crafting, I finished the square of the blanket, but it was a pretty wonky square.

I attempted to size it (by wetting it and ironing it into a square shape) which helped the situation some.

Once I recovered from holiday crafting in January, I began to add a border to the blanket.

Then, last Monday, I finished it!

The ends curl up a lot a bit, but it works and is generally recognizable as a blanket!

I declare it a success! Except I think I'm going to stick to scarves for awhile. :)

Yay for finishing your project! It's great - definitely more than I could ever make myself!

yay, congrats! you must have far more patience than me..i'm more of an instant gratification kind of person. because of that, i don't think knitting will ever become a hobby of mine.
