New Year, New Blankie

Being ahead of my self imposed time line gets my giddy on.  And I am giddy over this.

It came to be in a blink.  After futzing with several possibilities, including perfectly a symmetrical option, I have settled on the design for my 2014 blanket.  There are kinks yet to be worked out. That will happen in the making. 

I can't quite see the solution to short rows worked in one of the particular stitches I've chosen.  Hopefully, by the time I get the thing cast on and work to section three, something will present itself as the right way to accomplish the task. Maybe short rows is not the answer.  Right now it feels like the elegant way out and I do love elegance.  Rather than fight the design specifics right now, I'll just go with my gut and cast on.  Somewhere during the knitting and crocheting of sections one and two, it will settle in my brain.

For now, my fingers are itching to get started.  I've already wound skeins in anticipation and all is ready in a separate project bag.  This one is ahead of the time line and I've got my giddy on!

  1. Looks like an interesting design, Lenora! Reminds me of a modified Log Cabin! Can't wait to watch your progress.
