|Diagonal Stripe Blanket|
Because I've been consumed with knitting this diagonal stripe blanket. I can't believe how fast it has grown. And I seriously hope I didn't just jinx myself by saying that.
I started the blanket on February 19th and I'm using scrap bits of fingering weight yarn and a US 4 needle (I started out with a 3 then upgraded after a few rows.) It should be taking me years to knit this thing. It measures 50 inches across and currently is at the 60 inches in height mark but I plan to add another 10 inches before I turn that top corner.
I'm already thinking about knitting another (or three) in different, planned yarns and colors instead of a mish-mash of scrap yarn. Those diagonal stripes are more addictive than simple, stockinette pi shawls and I didn't think that was possible. Good grief!
Hope you'll join me for today's #MakersMonday linkup.
