Haha. For some reason, I feel the need to share all the details of this project.
I ripped out the block of 6-row horizontal stripes and re-worked it as a 5-row block:
And I like it MUCH better! The blanket will have (and keep) a much nicer shape and the overall texture of the fabric will be more even.
I hope to hum along with this project over the weekend... we'll see. There is lots to do, including turnover of the Airbnb -- our lovely guests formerly of NYC and soon NJ are leaving today, and we have a couple from Chicago arriving on Wednesday for almost two weeks. After that it's a couple of the more typical weekenders until August. I'm not really minding the longer stays, especially since the cleaning protocol is amped up (among other things, Airbnb has provided me with a 38-page cleaning guide/checklist) (they don't know that I learned from The Queen of Clean, aka MOM). Heh.
It's not the greatest photo, but our little Catalpa tree is LOADED with flower buds this year!
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
