that's a wrap ...


... er, a blanket anyway. Yes, I'm glad to report that my Blue-Muda Triangle Blanket is done. As I neared the end I started worrying about how much yarn was left. On the one hand I wanted to use it all up, but on the other hand I didn't want to find myself short before completing the final pattern repeat and the border. That's when it occurred to me that I could use my kitchen scale as an aid in my decision making. The plan? Weigh the remaining yarn, work a few rows, weigh it again, and then calculate approximately how many ounces would be needed for each repeat and the border. At the end of the seventeenth repeat with just over an ounce left, I knew I had just enough to work the border and bind off. Et voilĂ !

That's what Emily the Knitter did for me at KnitKnackers when I wasn't sure if I had enough yarn for a second sock for Isabelle. Another use for my kitchen scale (a Christmas present this year from Mike)
The blanket is gorgeous. Can't wait till the end of March!!
