Why, Oh WHY Is the Last Stripe SOOO Hard?

Ugh. For some reason, I’m dragging this blanket out into foreverdom. I don’t know why! It’s not like I DON’T want to be done with it; trust me, I do. I have lots of hats I want to knit! I think it must be all of the ends that need to be woven in, and the border I want to crochet on. Egad, how I hate finishing! (insert whine here)

So, slowly but surely I am plugging away. Five rows to go. Then the bind off. And all. Those. Ends. I think it’ll take another month.


Cool Stuff I Found on the ‘Net

  • The Any Yarn, Any Size Knit Hat Book–this book is finally available as a PDF download. It has SO many cute hat designs, if you love hats you won’t be able to pass it up.
  • Magic Loop Video–by the Knit Witch. This has to be the most clear example of how to do the Magic Loop technique that I have ever seen. Check it out!

    Come on Trish, you can finish! I know you can. Just remember this feeling in the future the next time you feel the urge to make a blanket. LOL!!! I’m sorry that’s not funny. I really do feel your pain. I’ve been in your shoes for over a year now with my Mason-Dixon Knitting Log Cabin blanket. The only good thing about my situation is I’ve been knitting the ends in as I go so when I’m done I really will be done. I’ll keep you in my thoughts and may the force be with you.

    Oh, Trish! It’s beautiful! What a picture it will make to see a sweet baby wrapped in that blanket.
