Yarn Along

This one is a big one...perhaps it needs a drum roll...
yes a drum roll is in order - drum roll, drum roll please...

The Chevron Baby Blanket
I almost gave up, 
but I didn't give up and quite honestly, I'm not totally sure what I was doing wrong.

But my super hero Leanne came to my rescue on Sunday, she sat with me,
helped me and it all fell in to place.
Since then, I have knitted at least 15 or more rows, 
changed colors twice and it's just flowing...and growing.



It is a blanket, Leanne suggested I knit it on circular needles...
I am not sure why, but I am going to ask her.
I like the needle, it's purple - but I would like to be able to lay it flat to show you.
With a circular needle I can't do that.


Hopefully, in the end, it will look like this.

And a big thank you to all of my followers, for encouraging me to keep going!!
And a huge thank you to Leanne who always helps me and believes in me!

  2. I am so glad you kept going. Its beautiful Debbie. I love how its turning out. My DIL loves circular needles because she says its easier on her hands. I wonder if that is why because it gets big and heavy towards the end?
    You are doing such a nice job.

Just a little aside.....I didn't think for one minute you would give up as you strike me as a very determined gal. =) I can't wait to see this beautiful pretty finished. Happy knitting!

  10. It is just Gorgeous, glad you didn't give up on it and that you were able to get a little boost to get you on the right track!! I think the circular is easier when you are knitting such a big piece like that.
