I have been wanting to try my hand at one of this type of blanket for a while but I could never get up my nerve to do so. Then I just decided ‘What the hell am I waiting for?’ So I found a pattern that I really liked and I grabbed up a bunch of yarn I had left and I got my butt to work. The very beginning was easy of course since it was still small and easy to handle. Once it got larger and larger it was not as easy to do. I am quite impressed with how the blanket ended up. It’s beautiful and quite large! I have already started on another one and I am looking forward to yet ANOTHER one after that! One pattern is already picked out after this one and I can hardly wait. The challenge of these blankets is absolutely perfect for me.
