The Never Ending Blanket

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.

Someday I will get back into knitting! Just reading about your journey with this project makes me want to get started again! It's like reading a really good book--finishing it is both sad and fulfilling at the same time, and you begin to look forward to the next one!
