Finally, Mo’s striped blanket is done! I think it took me as long to do the knit on border as it did to knit the center of the blanket — never again! If I knit this pattern again, I’ll crochet a border. Much easier and faster!

This is before I washed and dried it but it’s been washed now and it’s packed to go with us tomorrow. Finn and I are also packed and I’m going to start a knit hat while I wait for Keith to get home so we can pack the car. I feel like I’m forgetting something but I’m not going to worry about it!

    Well, it sure is pretty! Even if it took awhile to the edging. Safe travels, and I hope you remember what you have a feeling you are forgetting so you can sleep tonight.

    Looks like you have life under control and lots to look forward to at the end of your drive. Hope you and Keith have a safe drive filled with fun experiences.

    The edging is beautiful, but I agree, crocheted edgings are so much faster! The blanket is beautiful. Enjoy your time with the wee ones and enjoy the holidays!

    I just finished a vest for my great-grandson, who is eight. After trying to do the knit-on edging around the neck and armholes several times, I gave up and crocheted one on. With crochet, you can see how it’s going to look before you’ve invested hours in it. With knitting, not so much.
