I Need to Get Organised!

I have been meaning to knit bear a blanket for some time, and bear thoroughly approves of the idea.  Just before Christmas I had a rummage.  I thought I had started a blanket, but I couldn't find it anywhere so I assumed that I had remembered wrongly and started again.  I've got so far...

It has a knit border and I put in a detail in the stocking stitch main blanket...

I'm afraid it doesn't show very well, but it's tiny blocks of reverse stocking stitch as I go.  However today I was moving furniture (it's been that sort of day, I haven't done the washing up but I vacuumed a lampshade and moved furniture) and I found this...

A blanket considerably further on in plain knit.  Both blankets are around 250 stitches cast on.

I do have plenty of this yarn, I bought 2000g which is perhaps just as well as bear has given the matter careful consideration and wants both blankets.  I should be more organised.  However this is a perfect excuse to dodge the writing course and settle down with some knitting and a film.


  1. Knitting and a film sounds perfect-x-

  2. Lol sounds just like me - probably why I'm trying to organise my crafting stuff first. I keep 'forgetting' or 'misplacing' things. Sigh.

  3. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon xx

  4. Sounds good to me! It's always relaxing to sit and knit something that doesn't require a lot of shaping, counting of stitches, etc. And you are still being productive, as well.
