I’m well and truly overdue in a little update on my Special Baby Blanket. I had been getting along really quickly with this project until we went on our little trip away. I had planned on getting all the rows done and all the threads sewn in before our return, but…
In a completely different light than at home, I noticed a difference in the white rows I had last done. It was at this point I started new balls of yarn and the colour was different! Ugh, not happy! My original white was a little off white and the new one I bought was a bright white. Lovely hubby did suggest we try to get some while we were travelling from point A to B, but not a store to be found that sold this yarn unless we wanted to travel a couple of hours in the other direction. So needless to say it sat unloved and as is until our return.
The very next day I was out buying the correct yarn and we are happy again. This has set me back in my schedule but it won’t take long to catch up. I spend every evening working on it, and yes I’m still loving it. I’ve work out I only have another three repeats of colour to go then sewing in all those ends. I’m starting to think of a border for it. I’m open to suggestions if you have any!
So that’s where I’m up to with this special little blanket I’m working on.
