Purple blanket update 5

Hi everyone,

The last time I showed you progress on this blanket was at the beginning of January in this post. I’ve now finished the 3rd 100g ball and it’s growing slowly but surely. There are so many other things to do these days.

Stage 5

The main problem with this project is that I keep spreading it out to look at it. That won’t get it finished, will it?

    I agree with the comments above. If I was knitting something so lovely I’d be looking at it every couple of rows. LOL. 😉

    • Isn’t it amazing what we can do with two needles (or one circular needle in this case) and a ball of yarn?
