The entrelac saga continues

I looked at the 120cm square I had knitted. It's not a good size for a cot blanket. Besides it's too dark for a toddler; it's knitted in blues and purples. Not only that, because I had not made the decision to stop when knitting each square, there are 'live' stitches on the needles; so, I've changed my mind again.

I'm going to finish the blanket to the original size. However, I'm taking the pressure off myself to have it finished by 18th April. That way, I won't feel like I have to knit for hours on end; you know, "just one more row...". To preserve my shoulders, I knit for half an hour then go and do something else. When I feel ready I come back and knit for another half an hour. I'm on holidays so I have that freedom.

As the tortoise said to the hare, "Slow and steady wins the race!"


  1. Glad you are pacing yourself-both for the shoulder and so you don't get bogged down on the blanket. We are waiting for the picture preview!

  2. So many posts to read!
