Yellow to Gold to Granny Smith

I took my garter stitch chevron blanket out for coffee and a donut this week! That right there, friends, is an earl grey donut. It was FAN. TASTIC :)

Yarn, latte, donut. Good.

Also, Miss New Zealand thinks this blanket is hers, already. She’s generally a big fan of squishy knitted fabric, and this is no exception. If I’m not quick to put it away, this is what happens:

Feline usurper ;)

Can I show you some actual progress instead of just snacks and cats? YES! Ta da!

Giant chevron!

I’ve modified from the original pattern a little bit. Instead of working 50 rows per stripe, I’m doing 60 (30 garter ridges). I just wanted to use up more yarn and have a wider stripe than I had at 50 rows.

I like how it’s looking so far! Up next: apple green. I think the colourway is actually called “granny smith”.

Greens!

Greens!

Even though most of the time it’s squashed into a blob in my lap, it’s starting to be pretty substantial size-wise!

Blanket-ey!

Adding apple green

Can I bust out this stripe in a week or less? (Probably. My other activities this week will be deadline-dissertation-chapter-writing [ugh], deadline-TA-grading [ugh], and feeling grumpy and sad about my still far far away spouse [a million ughs]. That stuff means more knitting.)

  1. I am really impressed by your progress. I could learn a thing or two from your devotion to a project. Well done.

    • Thank you so much Linda!! You are too sweet :) As a knitter, I really like finishing things – I think that’s where my project loyalty comes from ;)
