I previously mentioned my wanting to make a blanket for our child. Well, I totally am! After much discussion with friends, I selected pale grey, deep brown and teal yarn. My pattern was either going to be blocks or a slightly nerdier Fibonacci sequence.
My nerdiness won.
There is even a spreadsheet. It calculates the number of rows and percentages.
I anxiously awaited the arrival of the yarn…
Then cast on and started knitting…
Then realized that I didn’t like the first brown striping, but didn’t feel like ripping back several rows…
And now, here we are, 13.3% completed
With this stitch (knitting every row) this blanket is going to be extremely long. My goal is for it to be at least 24″ wide, but it’s looking like it’ll be wider. The estimated 36″ long is way off. At 22 rows, it was already 6″ unstretched and about 7″ stretched.
This 256 row thing might have to be rethought out… I may cut it off after the last rounds of teal. We’ll see.
This is my project page on Ravelry for the Fletchling’s blanket.
And yeah, want something of your very own?
I happily take on commissioned projects!
