In the far reaches of darkness it flashed. A dull light color amidst the dark. What could it be? It was obviously larger than a dropped stitch. Was it a forgotten donation? A gift that did not get mailed?
With some trepidation, I reached my hand into the deep dark forgotten space and gently grabbed the wad o' stuff. A F-UFO. Forgotten UnFinished Object. Yes, I had totally forgotten that this crochet blanket even existed.
Sixty minutes. A short hour of time. That is all that it took to Remember and Finish the Object.
In the second photo, the arrow points to the middle strip where the "mirror" work begins. The arrow shows the starting chain. First, rows are worked in sequence from the chain. Then the exact same "mirror" sequence is worked beginning from the base of that starting chain.
No, it isn't rocket science.
No, it isn't an award worthy pattern.
No, it doesn't build lots of new connections in an aging brain.
But it is a sweet and useful baby blanket that deserves love.
And it is finished!
