My Feathers blanket for Squeak is finished!! I finished it late friday night. It had been languishing in my pile of things to finish later, along with the persille pullover. I tend to put off sewing up, and blocking, and finishing, sometimes til the clothes are too small for the recipient. Then I forget about them, so I must get them out to finish them off
I posted HERE about knitting the blanket, it was while I was knitting the persille pullover. I must finish that off soon, I am sure Squeak would love to wear it.
The blanket was almost finished, All I had to do is sew up the diagonal seams on the border (not the edging) which was to be sewn up in herringbone stitch. I had to google how to do this, but I think it came out nice. It is a 4-ply cotton, Heirloom brand. I heard a rumour it is from Bendigo Woolen Mills, but it hasn’t been confirmed. I love the woolen mill, I could spend a small fortune in there.
Hopefully I can get the persille pullover sewn up soon, I don’t enjoy sewing up, but I would like to reduce the amount of unfinished projects, You could say it is one of my new year’s resolutions. My yarn stash is very tempting, but technically I have 4 blankets being knitted. I would love to knit up a few nice cardigans for Squeak, she loves them, and she looks so sweet in them. So I must finish some items so I can cast on new ones.
Are you making any changes for the new year?
Lots of love,
