Normally I cringe at deadline knitting. It’s the type of knitting that if I want to enjoy it at all I have to start and finish it months in advance. I didn’t manage to get this done that far in advance. Realistically it may only be a few days in advance, but this blanket was finished before Widget came into the world so I am considering this a huge success.
The pattern is Adventurine
The yarn is all various balls of knit picks that I had in my stash with a tiny bit of left over IndigoDragonfly to make up for the fact that one of my balls of grey went missing before I even cast the blanket on and I have never found it. (Believe me, I tossed my entire stash looking for it. It’s not there and then I had to clean the mess up. I was really not impressed at all. And before you start thinking that maybe I never had the ball in the first place, I confirmed with my Rav stash picture that I did have two. I live in a one bedroom flat. Tossing the yarn stash all over the living room is not something I do unless I really, really, have too).
But, even with that little set back, the blanket is finished. I even weaved in all the ends. I had threatened to make my BFF do that part since I had just knit an entire blanket for her soon to be here son 😉 (See how much I love you Ms. K?) At some point I will have a picture with a baby in it, but until then these will have to do.
