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).
