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!


  1. I don't think I'm one that encouraged you to keep trying but I'm very proud of you! What an accomplishment! Enjoy your day sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

  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.

  3. Looks great. When I used to knit,I enjoyed working on circular needles,especialy for larger projects.

  4. I am so, so happy you didn't give up, Debbie, because your baby blanket is beautiful. Such a gorgeous pattern and the colours you chose are so pretty. 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!
