I finished it!! It was a lot of work, but I finished it on time. I just washed and fluff dried it, so now it's soft and fluffy I measured it to approximately 3 1/2 ' X 5'. It spreads all across my bed. It ended up a little larger than I planned, but it's good.
I am getting started on an afghan blanket for my niece. I picked her favorite colors, or at least the colors she had her room decorated with. I am hoping to finish it soon, she goes back to Colorado on Saturday. I am making good progress so far. I started it on Saturday. I am using the slanted half shell stitch.
I started making double sided placemats that may also be used as hot mats for under the pots when you place them on the table. I am learning this new stitch, was a little wtrange at the beginning, but I am getting a hang of it. I will use tan on one side and different colors on the back side. I started with pink.
I was looking for something I could use the leftover yarn from other projects, it's not enough to make one large item, so I can use it for placemats of different colors.
Finished yet another blankey. This time, I washed it with Melaleuca detergent, then added softner to the rinse, and added a Melaleuca Fresh dryer sheet. Set the dryer to low heat and dried for about 15 minutes. It is now the fluffiest freshest little blankey ever. I am so excited. I am hoping to surprise my aunt with it. I still have to work on hiding the color chance knots. I don't like to just change, I like to tie it to make sure it never unravels.
Imagine this blanket right now, fluffy warm and smelling so fresh.
