Blocked, sewn & delivered!






FINALLY! I am done with my mother's blanket & it is on it's way to Altoona. I hit a little snafu in the end that I was not expecting. ONE, and only one panel was too long?! I think the culprit was a cable that was longer than the others, I must of lost count. Instead of ripping the whole thing & re-knitting that panel, which is what I should of done. I was lazy & only ripped a few inches. I don't think mom will notice that there is only 7 cables instead of 8.

I shipped it off today & was very happy with it. It is incredibly heavy. I think it will keep her very warm! My son modeled it for me on the deck, even though it was 90 degrees out & he was very hot, thanks Justin! I can't wait for her to get it. I'moff now to Plurk.com dome more & get ready to leave for the shore in 12 days! Yeah....Vacation!

The blanket looks great! I don't think I would have re-knit the panel either. I have no doubt that your mother will love it!

Your mom's blanket turned out so beautiful! I know she is going to cherish it and use it the entire winter months. Such a nice thick blanket and a cheerful color. Me too, I would have done what you did.
That sounds so good right about now, going to the shore.
