Remember the Mitered Crosses Blanket I've been working on since back last summer? Well, I'm still motoring right along the highway of garter stitch. Right now, I have big stack (22 squares worth) of Noro goodness.
I keep thinking that this thing is taking FOREVER and then I remember that it's my own fault. You may recall that the original pattern calls for 10 squares. I knew from the beginning that I wanted 12. And then I decided that 12 squares was a little smaller than I really wanted so I added just four more to make it 16. Then before I knew it, I was up to 20. And a couple of months ago, I decided that I really wanted it big enough to cover me so I added four more squares for a total of 24.
I am happy to report that I am on square 23 and I can see the light!
Now that I'm nearing the end, I find myself both looking forward to finishing that last square and missing the knitting of the squares. This blanket has taken me through a tough time this winter and spring. It has been my friend and my solace.
