I was knitting this blanket for him, but today I frogged it for a number of reasons:
- Never knit a blanket (even a baby one) in fingering weight unless you want it to take a year to finish at the rate I was going.
- I added a second color (burgundy) to the grey as I was afraid I was going to run out of yarn, and I added a cream color stripe down the middle of the burgundy to give it some pizazz. My mistake was both the burgundy and cream were not washable and the grey was. So I could just see my granddaughter tossing the whole blanket in the washer and dryer and what a mess that would have been.
- I'm just plain tired of knitting on it and want to get on to other things. I knitted a blanket for the 1st great-grandson (his brother), and she can just use that one for this baby (I hope).
