I've finally finished my Basketweave Blanket. I started knitting this blanket back in February and while I was making great progress this winter it became the project, I kept putting on the back burner. I made numerous washcloths for gifts, a baby blanket for Mikey, and a few other projects too.
Considering it was a project I was making for myself, I wasn't in a real rush. I loved the yarn I used, the pattern is easy, and makes for a beautiful completed project. I think this is a pattern I will use again and, while my own blanket is full of mistakes, I think it's something I could do mistake free for a gift.
I finished the project by blocking. It is the same exact process I used for the baby blanket. Because there was a sizable border on the blanket, there wasn't much rolling on the sides, but I loved the soft finished feel of the blanket after it had been washed and laid flat.
I'm making progress in my knitting. I still have a long way to go before I tackle those complicated patterns and multiple needles but I'm happy that now I have a "go to" pattern. Who knows, maybe you'll be seeing a blanket in this pattern soon for a future wedding I'm invited to?
