Back On The List; But Off Again

Remember this too small for adult television watching blanket?  Well, it turns out that it was not finished.  I was looking for more space (stop laughing) in the new stash studio and discovered two full balls of the yarn!  Somewhere along the mass confusion that is moving, these got separated from the project pile of yarn.  The only sane and responsible thing to do was to rip the edging off the blanket and add more length.

Those two balls equaled eight more inches.   That is almost enough length to call this a television watching blankie for a not-tall adult.  

It was a little difficult to work on this, again.  Not that the pattern is difficult or the yarn is less than yummy.  The difficulty was the lap full of wool in the summer. 

This blanket is definitely finished this time.

That bit of yarn is all that remains.  The pattern is a ten row repeat and there is no way even the knitting gods & goddesses can make these few yards of wool stretch that far.

Finally, I've ticked this one off the list - for good.
