I have been knitting nothing but blanket squares this week. The baby is due in a couple of weeks time and it is still not ready, so I'm knitting like crazy. I've only knitted 12 squares so far, not sure why they're taking me so long. But I've joined them all together and now is starting to look a little like a blanket, which gives me hope.
I'm planning on making it 6x6, so there will be 36 squares in total. I'm a third of a way through at the moment, and if I have done my math correctly, I should be finished knitting squares by next Thursday. Once I'm finished knitting the actual squares, I need to do a border. I think I'm just going to do a plain Garter Stitch edging, but I'm open to suggestions! After the border is done, I'm buying some lovely fabric to back it.
I'm not happy with how it looks, but to be fair it is my first blanket. I do have an idea for my next blanket, when I know what I'm going to do I'll let you in on the secret.
I still haven't come up with a cool name for the blanket, so leave a comment with your suggestions!!
