Yarn Along

I am so proud to share the progress 
I have made on the baby blanket I am working on.

The Chevron Baby Blanketthis pattern is free on Ravelry

Here's a close up look at the stitches and the colors.
I am more than 3/4's of the way finished
 and I am honestly thrilled with the colors and the look of the blanket.

I started this blanket at least 8 times, 
and had to keep ripping it out, I just couldn't "get" it.
I think when you start a new project,
it is difficult to imagine - picture - feel what you are doing.
Once you feel it, you get it.
Now, this is such an easy knit and I am enjoying it so much.
I have memorized the easy pattern and I don't have to look at it anymore.
When I make a mistake, I can feel it and correct it right away.

You may remember that I almost gave up...
that my knitting teacher, Leanne, helped and encouraged me...
I am so glad I believed in myself...or that I am very stubborn,
I think it is the latter!
