Chasing Rainbows Blankie

At long last, this blanket project is done.  I started this in May 2011 and it was my intent to use up all of the Plymouth Encore worsted weight yarn in my stash (all in baby colors).  I kept picking this up to work on it and then quickly put it away; the pattern got boring and each round just took longer and longer.  Yesterday at my knitting group, I just grabbed the white yarn and cast off.  This proved to be a big mistake since the piece wants to roll something awful along the edges. I washed and blocked the blanket yesterday but blocking did not help the rolling. I spent a few hours today adding a crochet border and it still rolls quite a bit. I am a tad disappointed but I am over it.  It's done.  I am not touching it anymore.  I need to mail it off with another blanket completed long ago.  This will go to the Denver Children's Hospital (Denver, Colorado).

It's so pretty! I hate that rolling thing that stockinette does too...but your border was perfect!

Have a lovely day!

It's nice, and the baby that receives it won't mind a rolling border.

Gorgeous colors -- it's sort of the log cabin blanket slightly skewed -- and I think your ruffled border looks lovely. Great job and some very lucky baby will get it!
