Decided on Thursday that I didn’t like version #2 of baby blanket #2 for the twins, so spent part of Thursday frogging the thing (and I was 1/3 done!), then starting over. OK, I think what the problem is is that I’m bored with this yarn and this project. I have all this other yarn calling my name, you know? SO, I’ve promised myself that this is the LAST version of this thing. After all, the baby shower is coming up on the 6th, so I have to finish it. Here’s the pattern I’ve made up for it:
Using two different colors of Red Heart Super Saver (I know, I know, but the yarn I really wanted would have been $70 for the two blankets. This way, they will be totally washable when the babies pee/poop/puke on them, and they’ll last a really long time) held together and size 15 circ’s:
Cast on 89 stitches.
Row 1: K1, p1 all the way across.
Rows 2 – 8: Repeat row 1 for border.
Row 9: K1, p1 for 8 stitches, then k across up to last 8 stitches. P1, k1 for last 8 stitches.
Row 10: K1, p1 for 9 stitches, then p across up to last 9 stitches. K1, p1 for last 9 stitches.
Row 11: K1, p1 for 8 stitches. K for 35 stitches. P1, k1, p1. K for 35 stitches. P1, k1 for last 8 stitches.
Row 12: K1, p1 for 9 stitches. P across to last 9 stitches. K1, p1 for 9 stitches.
Rows 13 – ?: Repeat rows 11 & 12 until the body of the blanket is done.
Rows ?+1 – ?+8: Repeat rows 1-8 for border. Cast off in pattern.
I was DETERMINED to finish this silly thing this weekend so I could do some other stuff, but something was up w/me yesterday, and I slept from 5:45 pm till this morning (with breaks for dh coming to bed, dd waking up in the wee hours with an ear infection, dd climbing in bed w/us in the not as wee hours, etc.). If all these sick people in my house take naps later, maybe I can get in some good knitting time this afternoon. If not, I’ll have to wait till Thing One and Thing Two go to bed at 8:00.
Not enough light today to use digicam to take a picture of the work in progress. Hope to take one tomorrow.
